This revised edition of the List of Inscriptions on Tombs or Monuments in Madras 
is based primarily on the notes collected by the late Mr. J. J. Cotton, I.C.S., after the 
publication of the first edition in 1905. These notes were purchased by the Government 
of Madras from the executors of Mr. Cotton in 1928 and were entrusted to the late 
Mr. C. W. E. Cotton, c.i.e., I.C.S., for the purpose of bringing out a revised edition. On 
the death of Mr. C. W. E. Cotton in 1931, the work was entrusted to Mr. P. Macqueen, I.C.S., 
my predecessor in office. And when Mr. Macqueen left the office in 1935, the work devolved 
upon me. In this edition are incorporated not only the notes left by Mr. J. J. Cotton but 
also much useful information collected from various other sources like the old Asiatic 
Journals, the Madras Almanacs, the old Military and Civil Lists, the List of Marriages by 
H. Dodwell and the List of Danish Marriages by the Rev. K. Heiberg, etc. 

This edition is issued in two volumes. The first volume relates to the City of Madras, 
French India, Indian States and Fort Marlborough on the West Coast of Sumatra. The 
second volume relates to the districts of the Madras Presidency. At the end of each 
volume are printed an index to the names on the inscriptions and an index to the names 
occurring in the notes. As in the first edition, such of the inscriptions on monuments 
which are no longer in existence, but which are mentioned in Urquhart's " Oriental 
Obituary " (1809), have been printed within square brackets. It will be found that in a 
few cases under the column for inscriptions, certain particulars are printed within round 
brackets. This indicates that these particulars are not copies of inscriptions, but are 
only obituary notices collected by Mr. J. J. Cotton. 

I have to express my thanks to Lt.-Col. H. Bullock, I. A., a Member of the Indian 
Historical Records Commission, who kindly read through the form proofs of the first volume 
and made several valuable suggestions. My thanks are also due to Rev. K. Heiberg 
of the Danish Mission, Madras, and to the Rev. Father A. S. Colas, the Archbishop 
of Pondicherry, for furnishing information regarding certain inscriptions, and to 
Mr. E. Divien, m.a., of the Madras Christian College, for correcting the proof of the matter 
in French in Volume I. I must also express my indebtedness to Rao Sahib N. Kolu Nair, b.a., 
and Mr. V. J. George, b.a., dip. econ., the former and the present Assistant Curators and 
to Mr. D. S. Dharmaraj, dip. econ., Senior Assistant, and Mr. M. Natesan, b.a., of the 
Madras Record Office, for helping me in seeing the publication through the press.

This volume contains a select list of monumental inscriptions relating to Europeans 
buried in the Madras presidency. It includes all epitaphs of adults earlier than 1800 and 
such entries of later date as possess historical or local interest. Numerous translations 
from foreign languages have been added, and attention has been paid towards annotating 
the names of persons and places of importance. 

2. At the beginning of the last century an attempt to form a similar collection was 
made by William Urquhart of Madras in his " Oriental Obituary," printed at the Journal 
Press in 1809. This " Impartial Compilation," as it is termed on the title page, was 
originally projected in three volumes, but two only were published. An advertisement to 
the first number contains the announcement that " volume II is preparing and will be 
put to press so soon as paper can be procured, at present there being none in Madras which 
could possibly answer the purpose." It is believed that only two copies of this curious 
book survive, one in the library of the late Archbishop Goethals at Calcutta and the other 
in the private collection of Mr. Edward Wenger of the Bengal Secretariat, who has lent 
his copy for the purposes of the present work. The British Museum possesses only a copy 
of the first volume. Urquhart's precursor had been Asiaticus, whose " East Indian 
Chronologist " (1801) "from the commencement of the East India Trade by David 
and Solomon," and " Monumental Register " (1803) were printed at the Hircarrah Press, 
Calcutta, by Mr. Hawkesworth. Many of Asiaticus' gleanings were reproduced in 1815 in 
M. DeRozario's " Complete Monumental Register of epitaphs in or about Calcutta." 
Lastly in 1848 appeared the time-honoured " Bengal Obituary " of Messrs. Holmes & 
Co. of Cossitollah. This book was the product of a firm of undertakers, who traced the 
origin of monuments to the Deluge, " when the rainbow was made or selected as a stand- 
ing token," and encouraged the public to proper ideas of sepulture by the argument of 
the resurrection of the body. Since the appearance of this work, only occasional attempts 
have been made to preserve in print the crumbling memorials of European dead in India. 
In 1861 Mr. Augustus F. Bellasis of the Bombay Civil Service compiled a monograph on 
the old tombs at Surat, and in 1877 Mr. Leopold Ludovici, Editor of the " Ceylon 
Examiner," collected the Dutch inscriptions of that island into the Lapidarium Zeylandi- 
cum. Little was done in Madras till Mr. LeFanu in his " Salem Manual " (1883) set the 
example of registering the names of all Europeans who had found a last resting place 
in the cemeteries of his district. In 1880 facsimiles of the tombstones round St* Mary's 
Church, Fort St. George, were executed by the Survey department under the orders of the 
Duke of Buckingham, who was then Governor. This album was prepared for private 
circulation, and only two copies were left in Madras. Within the last few years a syste- 
matic recension of inscriptions from European graveyards throughout India has taken 
place at the instance of the Secretary of State, and lists have been published from every 
district in Madras. The present volume is a selection from those lists with additions and 
corrections. It is intended as a companion volume to the " List of Inscriptions on Tombs 
or Monuments in Bengal," edited by Mr. C. R. Wilson in 1896. 

3. The history of old Madras is in no small measure written upon its tombstones. 
Especially interesting are the memorials of the Company's earliest servants. They and 
their families lie buried in every coast town, and often a ruined cemetery is all that remains 
of a famous factory. Their Puritan names such as Ordonicus and Tryphena are land- 
marks which bind together successive generations. Like the Pilgrim Fathers, who colonised 
America, our stout-hearted forbears in the Land of Regrets were all of them trueborn 
Englishmen of credit and renown. Indeed, pioneering would seem to be the peculiar 
province of the Anglo-Saxon all the world over. The Scotchman follows at a later stage 
in the race. Our original Cape Merchants, Levant Traders and East India Venturers were 
typical sons of John Bull ; men of London, Bristol, Devon, and the Home Counties. As 
we travel down the centuries, there are associations with many names that have won 
recognition at home. A descendant of Cromwell in the person of John Russell was President 
at Fort WiUiam in the days of Queen Anne. Another, Nicholas Morse, ruled as Governor 
in Fort St. George almost at the same time that Milton's grandson, Caleb Clarke, was parish 
clerk of St. Mary's, Madraspatam. In the shadow of the towers of the High Court 
sleeps little David, the four-year old son of Elihu Yale. His father is remembered as the 
founder of an enlightened university and forgotten as the Governor of a benighted presi- 
dency. Every schoolboy knows that Thackeray was the son and grandson of Bengal 
Collectors ; but the tomb at Ootacamund of Sir Henry Davison, the Madras Chief Justice, 
to whom he dedicated the " Virginians, " is as unremembered as the grave of his uncle 

* This introduction was written by Mr. Cotton in 1905. 



Webb Thackeray at Cuddapah. Another grave interesting to lovers of literature is that 
of Charles Reade's civilian brother at Calicut, laid to rest beside Collector Conolly who was 
hacked to pieces by Moplas in 1855. This presidency can also claim a brother-in-law of 
Sir Walter Scott in Charles Carpenter, a former Commercial Resident of Salem ; while 
at St. Mark's Church, Bangalore, is a tablet to the poet's son and heir, a Colonel of Hus- 
sars, who perished on his voyage to the Cape, and another son sleeps in far-off Teheran. 
Trichinopoly has memories only for Heber, who, after three short years of India, died 
there in 1826 ; so that few visit its Fort Church, in the chancel of which reposes Rebecca 
Darke, a lady who has some claim on posterity as being the grand-mother of Julia, Lady 
Peel, wife of a Premier and mother of a Speaker of the House of Commons. In Madras 
the tombstone of Hugh Boyd, a reputed Junius, has entirely disappeared. There is no 
trace of any monument on the solitary G an jam coast to Alexander Maerabie, the devoted 
brother-in-law and adherent of Francis, an even better claimant to the authorship of 
44 Woodfall's letters." A son-in-law of de Quincey lies buried at Madras in the person of 
Colonel Baird Smith of the Bengal Engineers. Two of Addison's brothers, one a Governor 
of Madras, the other a free merchant, died at Fort St. George. It was the inheritance of 
the Governor's fortune that enabled the essayist to bring off his marriage with the Dowa- 
ger Countess of Warwick, the " Chloe " of Holland House with whom he had so long been 
in love. A son of Charles Dickens, for whom a cadetship had been procured on the Bengal 
establishment, finds a last resting place in Calcutta. His godfather, Walter Savage Landor, 
in England paid the tribute of verse to Rose Aylmei , who came out to her uncle, a Judge 
of the Supreme Court at Fort William, and died there in her twenty-first year " in the 
bloom of youth and in the possession of every accomplishment that could gladden or embel- 
lish life." The same writer in his " lines to Theodosia Garrow," the kinswoman of Anthony 
Trollope, celebrates a near relative of British Nabobs, of whom three repose in the cemetery 
beside the Cooum. Madras itself is not without a poet. In 1803 John Ley den, m.d., of 
St. Andrew's arrived on the Coromandel Coast as Assistant Surgeon and ended his life at 
Java in 1811, bewailed by Scott and Malcolm. Another well-remembered lament is that of 
Matthew Arnold over his brother in the Punjab Educational Service, the author of Oak- 
field or Fellowship in the East," who died at Gibraltar, on his journey home, and sleeps 
off his sorrows there beside 44 Lucknow " Kavanagh. South India has as many classic 
memories in her birth places as in her death places. Those who have read Lawrence Sterne 
and remember his heroine Eliza of the Sentimental Journey r , the pure and sprightly Eliza 
with all her refined tastes and elegant accomplishments, will marvel to call to mind that 
it was in no more magnificent city than Anjengo that Elizabeth Draper, nee Sclater, was 
born in 1744. Nineteen years passed and Tranquebar, the Queen of the Coromandel 
Coast, gave birth to Catherine Noel Werlee, cette rare et nonchalante beaute* indienne," 
destined to bewitch historical characters of high renown. Half a century later at Hydera- 
bad in the Deccan was born Kitty Kirkpatrick, the heroine of one romance and the 
offspring of another. Other names there are that have made history as well as literature. 
More than one mouldering monument testifies to the men of the coast army who fell 
fighting the battles of the Carnatic under Lawrence and Clive and Dalton and Draper. 
Our public highways are strewn with broken-down memorials to others who died on the 
march and made the roadside their resting place. Nor were all these heroes English- 
men. Upon Seringapatam tombstones may be read the foreign names of De Meuron's 
Regiment and its officers, names which have disappeared so long ago from the Army List 
that few of us know now a days that such a corps of Switzers ever formed part of our army 
during twenty most eventful years of India's Military history. Even in the paths of 
peace there are notabilities : the great and good Munro ; Governors Morse, Ward, Adam, 
Lords Pigot and Hobart ; Bishops Corrie, Dealtry and Caldwell ; missionaries like Swartz, 
Ziegenbalg, Noble and the Jesuit Beschi ; artists of the calibre of Colonel Swain Ward, 
Lieutenant Payne and the miniaturist Casselli ; surgeons like Anderson, Harris, Griffith 
and Pasley, worthy followers of the succession which began with Hamilton, Boughton 
and Holwell and has produced in our own day warriors such as Brydon and writers such 
as Busteed ; General Carnac, Clive's colleague at Plassey * whose wife's portrait by 
Reynolds adorns the Tate Gallery ; the DeMorgans, father and son ; Binny, Parry and 
DeMonte, founders of the three great merchant houses of Madras ; the Palmers and Rum- 
bolds of Hyderabad, and a host of others. The Civil Service is well represented by young 
Lushington, Heber's companion on his tour in Upper India ; by a Roebuck, uncle of the 
Sheffield reformer ; by F. W. Ellis, whose unassisted scholarship is so warmly praised by 
Burnell, the Prince of palseographists ; by Josiah Webbe ; by Rous Peter " the Pandyan 
and by a multitude of once potent civilian names. Then was the Augustan age of 
John Company ; and among its ruling families ran some of the bluest blood in the three 
kingdoms. Englishmen of birth were indeed no rare exceptions in India a hundred 
years ago. The most noteworthy feature in the Allahabad graveyard was a broken column 
over the resting place of a FitzClarence, brother of the Earl of Munster, and son of his

Majesty King William the Fourth. An old Bengal Civil List counts no less than nine 
baronets and eleven younger sons of peers in its ranks. The annals of the Indian Civil 
Service have yet to be written : but to their chronicler the " Book of the Dead " is 
likely to prove a genealogical paper of more than ordinary importance. 

4. As the oldest European presidency, Madras is exceptionally rich in memorials 
of other Western nations than our own. The Portuguese entered India as far back as 
1498 with (as has been said) the sword in one hand and the crucifix in the other ; but their 
inscriptions are very few. If we except the epitaphs at Goa, San Thom6 and Cochin, no 
monuments to the contemporaries of Camoens are traceable. The Cochin slab, dated 
1524, recently disinterred near the new Port office, is apparently the oldest memento 
mori of this nation in the peninsula. The Luz tablet is older, but it commemorates, not 
a death, but the foundation of a Church to our Lady of Light , perhaps the Madre de 
Deos from whom the word Madras is sometimes fancifully derived. At Colombo in 1898 
an even more ancient stone was turned up near the old breakwater, bearing the Lusitanian 
arms and the date 1501. It seems probable that in India, as in Ceylon, Portuguese monu- 
ments were destroyed wholesale by the Dutch. There is the recorded testimony of an 
early Dutch writer Saar that those at Jaffna were broken into pieces by the sailors with 
sledge hammers. In the south of the peninsula, Mylapore Cathedral and the Franciscan 
Church at Cochin contain the best collections. For a long time a Cochin stone bearing 
the name tfc Vasco " was regarded as commemorating Vascoda Gama's death, which occurred 
there in 1524, until the slab was properly examined by the late Rev. A. F. Sealy of Erna- 
kulam College. But although the relics of their race maybe few, the influence of Portu- 
gal upon Southern India was very marked, and it has contributed to the speech of 
to-day words that are in hourly use from Calcutta to Peshawar. The boat call of converted 
fishermen on the cote de la Picherie is still " Javier, Javier," though the cry has been 
less romantically interpreted as a corruption of the Hindustani " Jahiye, Jahiye." At one 
time Portuguese threatened to become the lingua franca of the Malabar and Coromandel 
Coasts, and as late as 1776 we find the epitaph of Danish Maderup at Tranquebar composed 
in that tongue. This circumstance takes us back to a period when Tranquebar Mis- 
sionaries preached in a periwig in Portuguese, and read from their prayer books an 
" oracao por a illustrissima Companhia da India Oriental." The altar text in their little 
church is written in Portuguese and the next village on the road to Karikal is called 
" la grande Aldee," aldea being Portuguese for village. A favourite Quietorium of the 
" naturals de Madrastapatam " was at St. Thomas' Mount, where it is recorded that one 
lady wished to be buried on the steps leading to the summit, because there the devout 
passer-by might read her epitaph and in his charity pray for the peace of her soul. 

5. Mention of the Mount leads on to mention of the Madras Armenians, whose earliest 
inscriptions are found there. These merchants from Persia are a practically extinct 
colony now-a-days ; but their little cemeteries are a witness that they once had a share 
in the commerce of the settlement. They settled permanently at Madras in the year 1666, 
and from 1688 are found in the service of the Company, who, for reasons of economy, 
had issued orders that, instead of multiplying European agents in India, Asiatics should 
be employed. In Madras the most notable " Armeniorum fautor " is Coja Petrus Uscan, 
the builder of the Marmalong bridge in 1726, whose documents regarding the Uscan charity 
are still to be seen in the Saidapet Collector's office. He lies interred at Vepery and the 
superlatives on his epitaph testify to his numerous virtues. The church of his country- 
men in Armenian street, Black Town*, was erected in 1772 on the site of an old burial 
ground and replaced a demolished place of worship on the Esplanade which dated back 
to some sixty years earlier. Several of its pavement graves, such as the family vault of 
Shameer Sultan, are very remarkable. One slab within its recess bears the name of the 
Rev. Arratoon Shumavon, " by the grace of God a priest from Shiraz " and printer of the 
first known Armenian journal. In Fort St. George, at Masulipatam and Negapatam, are 
other slabs with metrical verses in Latin and the vernacular. The Armenians have 
ever been a purely commercial people in this country. They built no cities and carved 
out for themselves no empire ; but to England they have rendered services which 
deserve remembrance and are fitly chronicled in Mr. Mesrovb J. Seth's " History of 
the Armenians in India." Their most remarkable tombstone is set not in the East, 
but at St. Denis in the West. " Cy gist le tr&s noble et tres excellent Prince Lyon de 
Lusignan, quint roy latin du royaume d'Armenie qui rendit I'ame a Pieu a Paris le XXIX 
jourde Novembre l'an de grace MCCCXIIL" 

6. Of all the European powers that held sway in India, none more genuinely felt and 
observed the cnlfe chs morl* than the Dutch. In his famous essay on the Tombs in West- 
minster Abbey (Spectator, No. 26), Addison has remarked on this characteristic : and Pepys' 
Diaiy contains a similar comment. Their regal mausoleums at Suiat long ago attracted 
the attention of travellers like Dr. John Fryer (1682) and Ovington (1680) ; the latter 

* Now called George Town. 



of whom mentions a custom maintained by Dutchmen in his day oi celebrating convivial 
feasts over the tomb of a toper of facetious memory where, fc * remembering theii departed 
companion, they sometimes forgot themselves." Of their disused cemeteries in South 
India, the Pulicat graveyard, which has a well-preserved lychgate of 1656 flanked by two 
standing stone skeletons, is the most remarkable. Over one of its oldest graves may 
be seen inscribed the letters V.O.C. (Vereenigde Oostendische Compagnie), the familiar 
monogram of the Netherlands United East India Company. On another slab is a pictorial 
representation of the Fort of Castel Geldria, which Mr. Rea has reproduced in his volume 
of facsimiles. The Dutch stones here and elsewhere were elaborately carved by matselaars 
or masons, who graduated in their profession before coming out to India, and handed 
down much of their skill to Hindoo craftsmen. The only European relic at Cape Comorin 
is an imposing granite block to the perpetual honour of a faithful Dutch factor. At 
Porto Novo the bas-relief over the grave of Matthys Pfeiffer's wife gives a perfect picture 
of an eighteenth century piper playing on a recorder and dressed in a long-flapped coat 
with old fashioned stockings and shoes and armed with a rapier. Further north at 
Bunder is the figure of a bygone mynheer wearing a three-cornered hat of the kind in 
which Gulliver is usually represented, and closely resembling the famous European head 
in one of the upper niches of the Tan j ore temj)le. In Wolfendahl's Church at Colombo 
are the state tombs of deceased Governors of that island, ornamented with heraldic 
emblems of the highest degree of excellence. Pieces of quaintly sounding rhyme are 
often added ; and the structures themselves are more than emblematic of the words of 
the sculptors that they will endure to the " laaste opstaanding." 

7. After Dutch settlements it is proper to speak of French ; for the two nations 
lived close together. No trace can now be found of any tombs to the pioneers of French 
enterprise in India, though a broken Tamil tablet in the precinct of St. Mary's, Madras, 
records the name of a native Christian founder of the Pondich&y Company. Several 
of the English gravestones brought from the esplanade burial ground bear marks of the 
English cannon balls which helped to keep Lally out of Fort St. George in 1758. But the 
only extant memorial to a Frenchman of that period is Bussy's little known grave 
opposite Pondich6ry Cathedral. Of the captains courageous who later sought service 
in the armies of native princes, many died in India. Charles Babel, dit Zephyr, general 
to the forces of Basalat Jung, was buried at Guntoor in 1770 and has these letters 
commendatory over his headstone : " Cheri de Fortune et favori de Mars, La Victoire 
suivit partout ses etendards ; D'Hercule il egala les travaux et la gloire, Mais une mort 
trop cruelle a tromp6 notre espoir." A still more famous soldier of fortune is Raymond, 
the eponymous hero of the Nizam's Myseram (Monsieur Raymond) Regiment. He sleeps 
on a lonely eminence outside Hyderabad where the anniversary of his death is still cele- 
brated by Mahomedans. Further south at Udayagiri is the family vault of Eustache 
De Launoy, who drilled the defenders of the lines of Travancore and may well have been 
a relation of the Governor of the Bastille. Even Ramnad, at the very end of the peninsula, 
possesses the grave of Manuel Martinz, a condottiere like de Boigne from Savoy, whose 
kindly eccentricities in his old age are amusingly recorded in the military reminiscences 
of Colonel Welsh. And here and there, as at Tummeracode in the Palnad, are the scattered 
sepulchres of adventurers who have left no other memorials of themselves than that they 
died there. 

8. Cemeteries to-day are the only witness that there ever was a Danish East India 
Company. Tranquebar has become even more of a city of the dead than Serampore in 
Bengal ; and is famous solely for its missionaries. No less than seventeen of these Halle 
magisters lie buried in its graveyards, and pious hands annually repaint the letters on their 
tombs. There rests Ziegenbalg, the father of Protestant missions in India, who died in 
harness at the early age of 35. There Swartz began the career which ended at Tanjore 
in 1798. There it was that Rottler, Gericke and Kiernander laid the foundations of their 
reputation. In latter days, the seniors of the mission turned their attention to scientific 
research, and this brought them wide celebrity even in Europe. An even more eminent 
name than theirs in science is that of the Frenchman Jacquemont, who was cut off like 
Csoma de Koros in the land of his sojourning. The French Academy conveyed home his 
remains in 1881, thus exemplifying the motto over Claude Lorraine's tomb in the Church 
of Trinita dei Monti at Rome ; " La nation frangaise n'oublie pas ses enfants cel&bres, meme 
quand ils sont morts a r^tranger." At Tranquebar two celebrated laymen found their last 
home : Colonel Miihldorf, from whose veins the blood-royal of Denmark has flowed into 
several Madrassi families ; and Sundt, whose sister became the wife of Blucher's brother. 

9. The Hebrew cemetery in Mint street and the Beth-haim of the white Jews at Cochin 
preserve the epitaphs of another interesting community. America, which gave to India 
Ochterlony and Alexander Gardner, who lived for many years as a fighting Afghan chief, 
is represented in southern districts by a Bellary cotton-planter and a commandant of 



Oanjam pensioners; Italy, the mother-country of Avitabile, Ventura and the Filoses, 
by Constantine Beschi and Nicolao Manucci, though the latter's gravestone at San Thom6 
is wanting ; Greece by a seventeenth century Sindbad whose monument has found its 
way to the presidency Museum. Foreigners of every nationality occur in the old East 
India Company's service. In 1764, remarks Niebuhr (father of the historian), its army 
possessed Polish, Swiss, Dutch, and German officers. Among those buried in Madras are 
Count de Warren and Baron von Kutzleben ; while the Bengal Native Infantry once con- 
tained the name of Captain Georges Francis Grand, afterwards a Writer and the first 
husband of the future Princesse de Talleyrand. 

10. That " peculiar people," the Huguenots, sent no inconsiderable contribution to 
the ranks of South Indian notabilities. The Carnacs, Chardins, Torrianos, Trapauds, 
Mangins, Cauliers, Amsincks and DeVismes were all members of refugee families. Of 
these, the Carnacs became such a power in the country that according to a popular saying 
they were credited with being the origin of the name Carnatic. Lord Pigot had Huguenot 
blood in his veins through His mother Frances Godde, tirewoman to tne Queen, who is 
misspelt in the Baronetages as Goode. Another Governor of Fort St. George, Charles 
Smith, was the descendant of a Huguenot emigrant Lefevre, who took the name of Smith 

11. The literature of the tombstone may often be turned to capital account. Unlike 
the paper of the record-room, these massive slabs, with their thick lettering, are practically 
indestructible, if they but succeed in escaping the privy paw of the native dhoby. For 
example, the Pulicat inscriptions are first hand contemporary authority towards the yet 
unwritten history of the Netherlands Company. Many an exact merchant inscribed his 
pedigree on his gravestone ; and such statements of tact are important to genealogists. 
Some there are that have left more than a name behind them. Lawson's Bay, Vizaga- 
patam, perpetuates the memory of a " country captain " of local renown. Robert Sloper, 
who rests at Tranquebar among the missionaries, founded Sloper street, Cuddalore, and 
there his wife Kitoria reposes. One chief of a settlement " though without the wealth * 
of a Governor, was rich in the real worth of a man." Others, like Paul Benfield and * 
Mr. Snodgrass of Rambha, tasted more literally of the fruit of the pagoda tree. At Surat 
the Latin hexameters over Christopher Oxenden (1659), that most brotherly of brothers, 
tell us more of the factory life of our predecessors than many pages of history. " Do 
you ask, my masters, what is your profit and loss ? You have gained sorrow, he has lost 
his life, but per contra let him write * death to me is gain '." Often the cause of dying 
is described with old-fashioned quaintness. " 1793, August 14th," records Asiaticus, 

" Mrs. Agatha Andrews. She died of pure sensibility.' ' At Guntoor a young civilian fell a 
sacrifice " to the incautious use of castor-oil nuts." At Arnee two commanding officers 
departed this life " most suddenly " by reason of duels. At Negapatam lies a fond wife 
" whose soul, perfect in all earthly ordained virtue, departed at the early call of its guardian 
author for its next assigned function in his eternal Kingdom." At another place an emi- 
nent lady's " smile was the beam of benevolence, her heart the soul of sympathy, and the 
uniform complacency of her temper illumined her countenance with the blended ray of 
sensibility and virtue." Even in their epitaphs do our ancestors give us a taste of their

These tombstones were removed from a cemetery now occupied by the Lw Courts, once known as the 
Monument Esplanade. In 1782 they were temporarily removed from the compound of St. Mary's Churoh to 
be used as gun platforms at the time of Hyder Ali's invasion and were not replaced until 1807, by whioh 
time many had been broken and others had disappeared^

The lower corner of the tombstone is worn away, and the missing 
letters are conjectured. It bears a coat of arms. Aaron 
Baker was the first President and Governor of Fort St. George. 
He arrived from Bantam by the Roebuck on September 1st, 
1652. From the original correspondence collection in the* India 
Office, 2274 and 2294, the Roebuck appears to have left England 
at tho end of 1051, quitting tho Isle of Wight on Docember 
30th and clearing the Land's End on January 1st, 1651-2. She 
passod tho Cape on April 22nd, 1662, came in sight of Java on 
June 17th, and anchored in Bantam Roads on June 26th. 
Having embarked Prosident Baker, she sailed again on the 
31st July, and reached Madras on September 1st, 1652. The 
date is confirmed by a letter from Bantam to Madras, dated 
February 15th, 1652-53 (O.C. No. 2284) whioh acknowledges 
the recoipt of a lotter from Fort St. George, dated September 
22nd, 1652, stating the safe arrival of the Roebuck on the 1st 
idem. In a subsequent letter from the President and Council 
at Surat to the Company, dated January 17th, 1652-53 (O.C. 
No. 2297) montion is made of Mrs. Baker's death during the 
voyage, but tho date of tho Roebuck's arrival is post-dated 
by one day. 44 Your ship Endeavour. . . came from Bantam 
with the Roebuck, on whom went President Bakor and his 
family to Fort St. George . . . The 2nd November from 
the coast were advised of the arrival of ships Roebuck and 
Bonetoe and that President Baker by the way from Bantam 
lost his wife, who died about ten days after they came from 
Bantam. They arrived at your fort the 2nd September.** 
The words of the epitaph suggest that Mrs. Baker died after 
childbirth. Her husband continued in office until 1655, 
when he was succeeded by H. Greenhill. " On the 20th January 
1655, Aaron Baker sailed for England in the ship Katherine 
relinquishing the Government to Greenhill. After his retire- 
ment he married Anne Cobham ... He survived his two 
sons, Thomas and Aaron, and died in 1683 at the age of seventy- 
three. He was buried at the parish church of Dunchideock, 
near Exeter, and the bulk of his property passed to a nephew, 
the Rev. Aaron Baker of Alphington."

The following inscription is taken from a white marble slab 
near the stairs leading to the gallery of St. Mary's Church, 
Fort St. George : —

Greenhill's epitaph is largely copied from Breton's Tomb at Surat. 

He had been Agent of Madras before it was raised to a Presidency 
under Baker in 1652. There is a document of that year signed 
** President Aaron Baker, Agent Henry Greenhill and William 
Gurney." Greonhill administered tho settlement until the 
1st September 1652, when Fort St. George replaced Bantam as 
the Company's eastern centre of Government, and President 
Baker arrived from Java and assumed charge. Groenhill 
remained at Madranpatam, retaining tho title of Agent through- 
out the period of Baker's rule. He was one of the first settlers 
in tho Fort and built a houRo of his own on the rivor bank 
known as Agent Greenhill's House. See Mrs. Frank Penny's 
Hiftory of Fort St. George, from which much of the infor- 
mation in the following notes has been borrowed.

Here lyeth the body of Nathaniel Foxcroft, son of George 
Foxcroft, Agent and Governor in Fort St. George. He

the 26th of October 1670, after he had finished his pilgri- 
mage on the earth 35 yea res having, alwaies exhibited all 
the honors due from a dear and dutifull son to his parents, 
and by his universal obliging and ingenious conversation 
obtained a good report and left a good name with all men. 
A good name is better then a precious oyntment and the 
day of death then the day of one's birth. Eccle. 7. 1 . The

George Foxcroft was appointed Agent and Governor on the re- 
signation of Sir Edward Winter, and took over charge of the 
factory in June 1665. In the following September, he was 
forcibly deposed by Winter and kept in imprisonment, to- 
gether with his son Nathaniel, for three years. The Direct- 
ors, on receiving news of what had occurred, sent out Commis- 
sioners with a formidable armament of ships and instructions 
to blockade the Fort. But Winter yielded up peaceable pos- 
session. Foxcroft was released and reinstated on the 22nd 
August 1668, and remained in office until 1670, when he was 
relieved by Sir William Langhorne. His son, Nathaniel, died 
just as they were on the point of leaving India together. An 
investigation was held into the conduct of Sir Edward Winter, 
who was exonerated but ordered to return home on one of the 
Company's ships. Winter died in England in 1685 and is 
buried in St. Mary's Church, Battersea.

Such moves our minds his greatness to adore, 
Even love his goodness and revere his pow'r.

To God ; in heaven her life with praises ends, 
On high with God this heavenly soul remains, 
No return thence till all is into flames.

Domingo Mendes had a houso in York stroot, rented at one pa- 
goda in 1688. The coat of amis bears a curious picture of a 
church, probably St. Andrew's in the Fort, shortly afterwards

The use of the rare Latin word " labili " is noticeable. The 
Cherimani or Xeremani are tho famous Armenian family of 
Shahriman. They profess tho Catholiu faith " ex illustri 
Xerimunorum stirpe in Persia oriundi sed vera fide magis 
laudandi " as recorded on a Calcutta tombstone. In Julfa 
they built their own church and a Hammam known as Shah- 
riman's Ham main. A branch of the family is settled in Venice. 
The translation of the Armenian part of this epitaph is as 
follows " This is the tomb and resting place of one of noble 
birth ; his name is called Sahak, son of Khojah Zaehariah, 
who is of tho family of Shahriman of Julfa, and ho was 39 years 
of age when he delivered his soul to the Lord. In tho year

the Bombay officer, Captain John Samuel Torriano, who suc- 
cessfully defended Onore against Tjppoo in 1783. Another

Clive and gave him tho run of his library, thereby enabling him 
to acquire the only book learning he ever possessed. In 1746 
he surrendered Madras to La Bourdonnais, and was sent to 
Pondicherry where, according to the story, he and his council 
wore marched through tho stroots in triumphal procession. 
This capitulation is commemorated in more than one French 
pictorial print of the period : and the keys of Fort St. George 
were to be seen till recently at Pondicherry. Morse was the son 
of Nicholas Morse by his wife Jane Lloyd grand daughter of 
Henry Ireton and the great great grandson of Oliver Cromwell,

The stream that winds majestioc \t the plain, 
Adcrns the prospect end delights the swain ; 
If chance the Summer leaves its channel dry, 
The village mourns its absence with a sigh : 
Such sighs, alas !, with Anguish fraught prevail'd, 
When Life's warm stream in Madge's bosom fail'd, 
No more his course sh? 11 Friendship's eye pursue. 
No more be brighten 'd with the pleasing view ! 
Here Madge, thou slcep'st; where now unconquer 

Thy dai ing Spirit and thy Martial vein ? 
Ah I what avails that covetous of praise 
Thou twind'st the Scholar's with the Soldier's bays.

Maj.- General Burton in his Renuniscences of South India who 
was stationed with the 13th N.I. at Samulcottah in 1842 or 3 and 
lived in the house which had once belonged to Dr. Roxburgh 
states : 

" and the garden which was a very good one held many rare 
and valuable trees, fruit bearing as well as others. There 
was one thing on the premises which might had better 
been away — no other than the tomb of the Doctor's wife, 
which stood exactly opposite to the front floor and not 5 
yards away from it ! A strange and unpleasant crotchet 
of the Doctor to deposit the remains of his deceased spouse 
in such a place ! To remove the tomb (an oblong stone 
structure) would have shocked the prejudice of many of 
my neighbours ; I therefore did the next best thing, and 
trained a fine Rangoon creeper over the tomb which in a 
few months was completely hidden by the pink and white 
flowers of the fast growing plant."

204 19th Oct. Hugh Boyd . . [Hugh Boyd, Master Attendant of Madras, aged 48 years.] 


" Mr. Boyd left an amiablo and accomplished widow and two 
promising and affectionate children to lament his loss.*' 
Lo 1 behold in robes of woe 
Genius, wit and loarning go : 
Genius sad no longer smiles, 
Wit distressed forgets his wileg 
Majestic learning in sober state moves. 
Hugh Boyd, the roputed Junius, was the seoond son of Alexander 
Maoauley of county Antrim and Miss Boyd of Ballycastie. 
He was born at Ballycastie in October 1746. Ho was a school- 
follow of Grattan and a protege of Flood. Left noarly destitute 
by the death of his father at an early age, he chose the law as 
his profession and went to London, whore ho became acquainted 
with Goldsmith, Garrick, Armstrong and the celebrated Mrs. 
Macauley. He was most familiar with Mr. Laughlin McLean, 
the accredited agent of Mahomed Ali, Nabob of Aroot, who 
instructed him in the details of the dispute botween his client 
and tho Company. Boyd then took up tho Nabob's causo in a 
series of lotters that appeared in Woodfall's "Public Advertiser " 
in 1777, and this led to his accompanying Lord Macartney, 
Governor of Madras to Madras, as Second Socretary in 1781. 
Beforo he left England the J unius controversy was at its hoight 
and his letters to Woodfall gave rise to a widely indulged opinion 
that ho was Junius. Pitt stated his strong belief in it, and 
recounted an incident of their having jointly reported an 
Irish debate whore Boyd's account of Colonel Barre's speech 
reminded him in spirit, point, and sarcasm so strongly of Junius 
that ho always retained the conviction that tho piece proceeded 
from no other pen. Boyd accompaniod Sir Edward Hughes' 
Expedition to Trinoomaloe and conducted a mission to tho King 
of Kandy. On his way back from Ceylon he was capturod by 
Suffrein's fleet and imprisoned at the Isle of Bourbon for sevoral 
months. After his liberation he lived for some time at Calcutta, 
but was recalled to Madras as Master Attendant in 1781* 
In 1792 ho started the "Madras Courier" and in the 
following year projected the "Indian Observer", a series of 
papers on morals and literature, and founded a weekly journal 
"Hiroarrah" (i.e., messenger) as a vehiclo for tho essays. In 
spite of his Mastor Attondantship, which brought him 200 star 
pagodas a month and tho profits of his literary work, Boyd 
became involved on aocount of his convivial habits and want 
of prudence. In 1794 he proposed to publish by subscription 
an account of his embassy to Kandy, and had actually begun 
the work when ho was carriod off by an attack of fever. His 
claims to a place in the History of English literature rest very 
much on the assumption, maintained by Almon and by George 
Chalmers, that he was tho veritable Junius. It is remarkable 
that he never contradicted this conjecture. Lotters reached him 
addressed " Junius Boyd, Esq.," and a oopy of Junius superbly 
bound was kopt upon his table, with its pagos filled with penoil 
marks and references to living names and characters. In 
1767 he married Miss Frances Morphy, and on the death of his 
maternal uncle assumed tho name of Boyd. His tombstone 
has now disappeared ; but Urquhart devotes five pages of prose 
and verse to his memory. 
There is an interesting article styled Hugh Boyd of Madras, the 

Reputed Junius in the Asiatic Journal of October 1834. 
Miss Maria Rosalie Boyd married on 9th Ootobor 1816, James 
Baillie Pender, Surgeon. (Asiatic Journal, July 1817).

captured three times arid carried to the Isle of France ; but his 
manly bosom over glowing with patriotic fire, he sought every 
opportunity, even in captivity, of being useful to his country ; 
and he was so fortunate as to render her a very essential service, 
by being the first person, who transmitted, at tho hazard of his 
life, to our Governor-General, a circumstantial account of the 
proceedings of the enemy, with a copy of the proclamation 
announcing the arrival of Tippoo Sultan's ambassadors on the 
island, and the requisition of raising volunteers for his service. 
On the receipt of this intelligence at Bengal, the measures of the 
Governor- General were promptly adopted to frustrate tho wicked 
intentions of our enemies ; and which terminated finally to the 
honor of our country, to the everlasting disgrace of the French 
and tho downfall of Tippoo. Captain Urquhart was well versed 
in polite literature, and many of his poetical effusions have occa-

396 11th May George LordPigot. "In memoriam." 

A granite slab bearing this inscription was placed by order of the 
Duke of Buckingham over a gravo and lead-encased coffin dis- 
covered in 1875 while digging the tomb of Lord Hobart in the 
ohurch. The coffin is supposed to be that of Lord Pigot, who 
died while a prisoner in the hands of his Council. The vestry 
records prove that permission was given to bury his body in the 
church. He had been confined under care of Major (afterwards 
Genoral) Mathew Homo, R.A., at St. Thomas' Mount, probably 
in the Moss House, and was brought to Madras for ohango of air. 
George Pigot joined the service as writer in 1736. Whon serving 
at Fort St. David, he was sent with Clive to Trichinopoly in 
charge of a convoy, and both narrowly, escaped capture. He 
succeeded Thomas Saunders as Govornor in 1755 and success- 
fully defendod the city against Lally. In 1763 he retired upon a 
fortune of 40 lacs, and purchased an Irish peerage. He was 
persuaded by tho Directors to return to Madras as Governor for 
the second time in 1775 and found himself at varianco with his 
Council over tho reinstatement of the Tanjoro Rajah. The 
notorious Paul Benfiold, who later on in his caroor, is croditod 
witli having returned nine members to Parliament, demanded 
settlement of a claim of 23 lacs, which by a majority of seven to 
five the Council decided to be valid. Pigot thereupon suspended 
first t wo and then four more of his Councillors and ordered the 
arrest of Sir Robert Fletcher, Commander-in-Chief. The 
opposition immediately Assumed the Government and Pigot was 
arrestod by Colonel James Stuart on the 24th April 1776. He 
died in confinement tho following May. He was owner of the 
celebrated Pigot diamond, of which there is a model in the 
British Museum. This stone was sold in 1 819 for £30,000 to AH 
Pasha, who when mortally wounded by Reshid Pasha (February 
5th, 1^22) had it crushed to powder in his presence. There is a 
curious picturo of Lord Pigot, signed by G. Wiilison, 1777, in the 
Durbar room of the Tanjore Palace. Fame is blowing a trumpet, 
which she holds with one hand, while she supports in the other 
a portrait of Pigot. Below her is a mourning female. On the 
pedestal which supports the oval frame of the portrait is inscri- 
bed, " Siege of Madras raised February 17th, 1759. Died Miy 
Jlth, 1777." 

Born on 4th March 1719, the eldest son of Richard Pigot of West- 
minster by his wife Frances, George Pigot joined the East India 
Company's Civil Servi ce at the age of 1 7 and arrived at Madras in 
July 1737. His securities were his two brothers, Robert And 
Hugh Pigot who entered the army And nAvy respectively. The 
former rose to be General And the latter Admiral. There was 
Also a Captain Charles Pigot who was commander of the Dolphin.

Goorge Pigot appears to have been in 1740 a clerk to the vestry 
of St. Mary's Parish in addition to being a merchant in Com- 
pany's service. The duty of the vestry clerk was to record the 
minutes of the vostry meetings, to draft the letters, to keep a 
record of all receipts and payments of money and to balance 
the accounts monthly, (pp. 534-5 of Tho Church in Madras, 
by Rev. Frank Penny.) 
Pigot was unmarried. On his death tho Irish barony became 
extinct, whilo the baronetcy devolved upon Ins brother Robert 
Pigot. Ho loft several natural children among others (1)

tist and General, who Hurrendorod in 1777 at Saratoga. In 1781 
he was commissioned to raise a regiment of light dragoons for 
service in India, the first European cavalry sent out to that 
country. This corps, originally known as the 23rd Light 
Dragoons, was formed out of drafts from other regiments. 
Standards, now in possession of tho 1 9th Hussars, were presonted 
to it by George III, and early in 1 782 it embarked on board the 
East India fleet under convoy of Admiral Sir R. Bickerton, and 
landed at Madras towards tho ond of the yoar. Under its 
clianged name of the 1 9th Light Dragoons it subsequently won 
great renown on Indian battlofields. Colonel Floyd, father-in- 
law of Lady (Robort) Peel, was its most celebrated commander 
(soo No. 2698). In September 1783 when General Stuart was 
dismissed from service for systematic disobedience of orders, 
Major-General Sir John Burgoyne, who was the next Senior 
Officer was appointed to command the King's forces but he 
declined to recognise Stuart's disposition and Colonel Ross 
Lang was appointed to the command of tho army, Burgoyne,

1791 : — -"Government having received advice of the death of 
Lieu tenant -Colonel Joseph Moorhouse, who was killed in the 
assault of the Pettah at Bangalore on the 7th instant, it has been 
resolved as a testimony of respect to the memory of an officer 
who has served the Company many years with zeal, spirit and 
ability, that his remains, with the permission of the ministers 
and churchwardens, be publicly interred in the Church of Fort 
St. George, at the Company's expense, and a marble tablet fixed 
over his grave with a suitable inscription in commemoration of 
his merits." The monument was executed in England by C. 
Peart London (ram of battering ram). It is of white marble 
and represents Britannia sea ted on a lion, crowning a medallion 
head of Moorhouse with laurel. His death at the storming of 
Bangalore forms the subject of a picture by Robert Homo. 
" Colonel Moorhouse, beyond comparison the most valuable 
officer in tho army received 2 wounds the last of which proved 
mortal and put an end to his life in half an hour." Munro Vol.

1785, at St. Mary's Church to Augusta, second and youngest 
daughter of the Kev. Andre Boisdaune. His age at the time of 
death was 47. His widow became the 2nd wife of Lord Audley 
who died 24th August 1818 at Sundridge Lodge in Wiltshire, 
aged 60 and was preceded by his only son Hon. John Tuchet. 

Saored to tho memory of Margaretta Baroness Hobart,

having struggled for a few months on account of those, whom 
She has left to deplore her loss, She departed this life on the 
7th of August 1796, in the 41st year of her age. 

Lord Hobart, who gave his name to Hobart Town, Tasmania, was 
Governor of Madras from 1794 to 1798. Ho married on January

400 13th Feb. Frederick Chris- Sacred to the memory of the Rev. Frederick Christiah 
j^gg tian Swartz. Swartz, whoso life was one continued offort to imitate the 

example of his Blessed Master, Employed as a Protestant 
missionary from the Government of Denmark, and in the 
same character by the Society in England for the Promotion 
of Christian Knowledge, he, during a period of fifty years, 
" went about doing good," manifesting in respect to himself 
the most entire abstraction from temporal views, but embrac- 
ing every opportunity of promoting both the temporal and 
eternal welfare of others. In him religion appeared not 
with a gloomy aspect, or forbidding mien, but with a graceful 
form and placid dignity. Among the many fruits of Ids 
indefatigable labours was the erection of the church at 
Tanjore. The savings from a small salary were, for many 
years, devoted to the pious work and the remainder of the 
expense supplied by individuals at his solicitation. The 
Christian seminaries at Ramanadpiiram and in the Tinne- 
velly province were established by him. Beloved and honored 
by Europeans, he was, if possibles held in still deeper rever- 
ence by the natives of this country of every degree and every 
sect, and their unbounded confidence in his integrity and 
truth was on many occasions rendered highly beneficial to 
the public service. The poor and the injured looked up to 
him as an unfailing friend and advocate. The great and 
powerful concurred in yielding him the highest homage 
ever paid in this quarter of the globe to European virtue. 
The late Hyder Ally Cawn, in the midst of a bloody and 
vindictive war with the Carnatic, sent orders to his officers 
" to permit the Venerable Father Swartz to pass unmolested 
and show him respect and kindness, for he is a holy man 
and means no harm to my Government." The late Tuljajee, 
Rajah of Tanjore, when on his death-bed desired to entrust 
to his protecting care his adopted son Serfojee, the present 
Rajah , with the administration of all the affairs of his country. 
On a spot of ground granted to him by the same Prince, 
two miles east of Tanjore, he built a house for his residence 
and made it an orphan asylum. Here the last 20 years of 
his life were spent in the education and religious instruction 
of children, particularly those of indigent parents, whom he 
gratuitously maintained and instructed. And here on the 
13th of February 1798, surrounded by his infant flock and 
in the presence of several of his disconsolate brethren, 
entreating them to continue to make religion the first object 
of their care and imploring with his last breath the Divine 
blessing on their labours, he closed his truly Christian career 
in the 72nd year of his age. The East India Company, 
anxious to perpetuate the memory of such transcendent 
worth, and gratefully sensible of the public benefits which 
resulted from its influence, caused this monument to be 
erected. Ann. Dom. 1807. 

The monument was erected by J. Bacon, Junior Sculptor, London 
1806. Go ye into all the world and preaeh the gospel to every 
creature— Mark Ch. XVI— Verso 18.

17C2 ; to Tanjore 1778 where he died, A monument by Flax- 
man at Tanjore represents Rajah Serfojee holding the dying 
man's hand and receiving his blessing. Below are the following 
linos composed by the Rajah himself. They are the first attempt 
at English versification by a Hindoo prince (see No. 2548) : — 
" Firm wast thou, humble and wiso, 
Honest, pure, free from disguise ; 
Father of orphans, the widow's support, 
Comfort in sorrow of every sort. 
To the benighted, dispenser of light, 
Doing and pointing to that which is right, 
Blessing to princes, to people, to me ; 
May I, my father, be worthy of theo ; 
Wisheth and prayeth thy Serfojee." 
Serfojee died on the 8th March 1832 in his fifty-fourth year. 
" Gericke and most of the missionaries usually termed Swartz " our 
good and venerable father.'* In 1793 he paid his last visit to 
Madras, left it on 20th Septembor 1793. He seldom spoke 
of Madras but as Sodom and Gomorah." (Taylor, p. 77). 
Swartz was successively Chaplain, Vakeel, guardian, envoy and 
political commissioner. Flout me who may, I will maintain that 
he was not the model of a good missionary. He was a great and 
good man, born for great things and singularly made use of in 
Providence to accomplish them. (Taylor, p. 25). 
lor a sketch of his life and works see Asiatic Journal of July 1834. 

401 2nd Oct. Chbistian William Sacred to the memory of the Revd. Christian William 
18037" " ~ Gerickb. Geeicke. Destined to labour in a peculiar vineyard (that 

of the conversion of the natives of office) he fulfilled his 
sacred office with primitive simplicity and purity. Worthy 
associate of the Venerable Swartz, like him, he toiled thro* 
life with sedulous but temperate zeal, to plant in every 
accessible soil the pure spirit of Christianity. Pagans, 
uninstructed Christians, and especially their children, were 
the object of his unceasing labours of faith and love. He 
was called to receive the eternal reward of his patient and 
unweariod course of usefulness, in the year of our Lord 
1803, aged 62 years. 

The monument is by Flaxman and represents Gericke teaching. 
The monument is a neat unpretending work by Flaxman. It 
represents a minister addressing a native in a pensive attitude 
from an open book, and the word * believe ' is above. Three 
children of different height are looking up to the speaker. The 
inscription is beneath and the whole in white marble. It is in 
the north west corner of the building and ceases to be in the 
proper place. 

He was a native of Colberg in Pomerania ; graduated at Halle ; 
arrived 1767 ; joined Huttemanat Cuddalore 1767 ; succeeded 
Fabricius at Madras 1788. He died at Vellore, October 2nd, 
1803, and is buried in the family vault at Vepery. He left 
1,600 pagodas besides valuable house property to the S. P. C. K. 
His daughter Dorothea Sophia married John Hunter, and died 
May 22nd, 1796, in her 20th year (No. 629). Gericke says in 
his will : " My greatest troubles have occurred during the last 
seven years. My daughter Dorothea Sophia Hunter died aged 20, 
and my son Captain George Frederick aged 30 " (at Ongole, 
May 16th, 1801). Gericke's wife was a Miss Sophia Hutteman 
who died 12th July 1807 (see No. 1627). 

Swartz called him a sincere Christian and a Nathaniel in whom there 
is no guile. Swartz and Gericke were in a minor sort of way Lu« 
ther and Melanothon. As a preacher in various languages perhaps 
none in the country exceeded him. He went up the country 
on hie travels as he used, once a year, at a considerable expense 
to himself, to diffuse the knowledge of the gospel of Christ and

remains are intorred in the burial ground of the parish and 
this monument is erected by the unanimous voice of the 
parishioners of Madras as a token of respect to his memory. 
Ho discharged the office of a minister in Fort St. (George for 
more than twenty years with fidelity and correctness and 
during the whole period enjoyed the confidence and esteem 
of the community at large. His gentleness of manners, his 
modesty and humility were exemplary, and his whole 
deportment such as became the character of a true minister 
of the Gospel of Christ.

403 9th Nov. Josuh Webbe .. To the memory of Josiah Webbe, Esquire, for many years 

1804. Chief Secretary to the Government of Madras, and afterwards 

Resident at tho Court of Scindia, whore he died the 9th of 
November 1804, aged 37 years. His mind by nature, firm, 
lofty, energetic, was formed by classical study to a tone of 
independence and patriotism not unworthy of the best 
days of Greece and Rome. Disdaining the little arts of 
private influence or vulgar popularity, and erect in conscious 
integrity, he rested his claims to public honours on public 
merit. An extensive knowledge of the Eastern languages 
forwarded his rise to stations of high trust, where his ambi- 
tion was fired to exalt the honour and interests of his country. 
But in the midst of a career thus useful and distinguished, 
preferring the public weal to personal safety, he fell a martyr 
to an ungenial climate in the prime of life, beloved with 
fervour by his friends, particularly lamented by the Govern- 
ors of India, admired and regretted by all. To his publio

And now, Lord, what wait I for ? 

My hope is in Thee. 
Could I, dear Saint, to this cold Stone impart 
Each deep Impression on thy Husband's Heart : 
Could I in Language to my Sorrow just 
Record this last Sad Tribute to thy Dust : 
E'en Strangers then, who read the faithful Line, 
Should pause in solemn Silence at thy Shrine ; 
Should mourn with me my late espoused Bride, 
Untimely severd from her Russell's side, 
In Joy's first Dawn, in early Beauty's Bloom, 
Torn from the nuptial Altar to the Tomb, 
Then should they see thee, lovely in thy Youth, 
Serene in Virtue, dignified in Truth, 
Firm without Rashness, gentle without Fear, 
Sedate tho' cheerful, polish'd yet sincere. 
So wise, so soft : so gay, yet so resign'd. 
So fair in Person and so pure in Mind. 
Should here contemplate with admiring Eye. 
A Model how to live ; alas ! and how to die.

408 18th April Sir Barry Close, This monument was erected by the Honourable East India 

1813. Bart. Company to the memory of Major-Gonoral Sir Barry 

Close, Bart, in testimony of their gratitude for his ardent 
zeal, and entire devotion to their service, equally manifested 
in the application of high Military attainments, and of 
profound political knowledge. His character derived its 
brightest honors from that union of conciliation and firmness, 
which after contributing to terminate a successful war, was 
eminently displayed in diffusing the blessings of peace over 
a numerous native population, who without being subject 
to British rule, felt the protecting influence of British 
counsels in the mild administration of authority which 
succeeded the usurpation of Mysore. He departed this 
life April the 18th 1813, aged 56 years. 

Closo entered the Indian Army in 1771. At the final siege of 
Seringapatam ho was Adjutant- General to General Harris, 
who stated in despatches that his successes were chiefly to be 
attributed to him. He was Resident at Mysore till 1801, being 
then transferred to Pooua, where he concluded with the Peishwa 
the treaty of Bassein, the ultimate consequence of which was the 
destruction of the Mahratta power. He retired in 1811. Mount- 
stuart Elphinstone wrote of him, ** I doubt whether such an 
assembly of manly virtues remains behind him. A strong, erect 
and bandy frame, a clear head and vigorous understanding, 
fixed principles, unshaken courage, contempt for pomp and 
pleasure, entire devotion to the publio service, formed the 
character of Sir Barry Close-a character one would rather think 
imagined in ancient Rome that mot within our own ago and 
nation." Close was an intimate friend of Wilks, who dedicated 
his history of Mysore to him and there describes him as " having 
mastered the logic, the ethics and the metaphysics of Greece 
through the medium of the Arabic and Persian languages/* The 
town of Closepett in Mysore was so called in honour of him. 
There is an engraving of this monument in NeilTs 44 History 
of the First Madras European Regiment," page 404. It is by 
Flaxman and the finest monument in the church. He was made 
Lieut, on October 2, 1778, Capt. December 18, 1783, Major June 
1, 1796, Lieut.-Col. December 21, 1797, Col. on August 24, 1803, 
and Major-General on July 25, 1810. When Lieutenant ho was

will live for ever in the annals of his country, but in the 
affectionate memory of his friends were lost in the recollec- 
tion of his private virtues. 

Cousin of Lord Hood and younger brother of Captain Alexander 
Hood, R. N., who fell in action between the Mars and the French 
seventy-four Hercule off the Bee du Kaz, April 2lst, 1798. 
In Butleigh Church, Somerset, is a very long and not too felici- 
tous epitaph upon the three Hood brothers by Southoy, whose 
brother Thomas, a midshipman on board the Mars had been 
severely wounded in the engagement. In 1831 a column 130 
feet high was erected on a hill near Butleigh to the momory of 
Sir Samuel Hood. The linos of Southey which refer to him are — 

" One brother yet 

Survived with Koppel and with Rodney train'd 
In battles, with the Lord of Nile appro vod, 
Ere in command ho worthily upheld 
Old England's high prerogative*. In the east, 
The west, the Baltic and the Midland Seas, 
Yea, wheresoever hostile fleets have plough'd 
The ensanguined deep, his thunders have been heard, 
His flag in brave defiance hath boon seen ; 
And bravest enemies at Sir Samuel's name 
Felt fatal presage in their inmost heart, 
Of unavertible defeat forodoom'd* 
Thus in the path of glory ho rode? on, 
Victorious alway, adding praiso to praiso ; 
Till full of honours not of years, beneath 
The venom of the infected clime ho sank 
On CoromandeVs coast, completing there 
His service, only when his life was spent." 
Lady Hood was a daughter of Lord Seaforth. In August 1811 
Sir Walter Scott sent out by her a long letter of introduction to 
his brother-in-law Charles Carpenter, then Commercial Resident 
at Cuddalore (No. 2315). 

410 26th Nov. Charles Robert Charles Robert Ross of the Madras Civil Servico departed 
1816. Ross. this life on tho 26th of November 1816, at the early age of 

thirty-threo years. " But wisdom is the grey hair unto 
men and an unspotted life is old age." Ho filled his station 
with dignity and honor, yet, humbly exercised himself 
" to have alway a conscience void of offence toward 
God, and toward men," charitable, benevolent, frank 
and generous, Ms breast glowed with universal philan- 
thropy. He was a dutiful son, an affectionate brother, a 
sincere friend : an unspeakable kindness flowed from his 
heart, regulated his actions, and inspired reciprocal good- 
will. In his public and private affairs, integrity was his 
guide, and while he did justice to his employers, ho protooted 
and supported tho fellow- creatures committed to his charge. 
The natives of the Kurpah Collectorate will long cherish 
his memory and mourn his loss. Deservedly distinguished 
by his suporiors, he advanced rapidly on the road to prefer- 
ment, but, in the midst of health and in the bloom of life, 
he was called to a better world. A consistent Christian, it 
is humbly hoped he is gone to receive the reward promised by 
the Redeemer to his faithful servants. This monument 
is erected by a friend, to whom the remembrance of his 
virtues will ever be dear and sacred. 

The monument is by J. Bacon. It bears masonic symbols and 
the pelican representation of self-sacrifice. Boss, Zillah

evening. (Taylor, p. 182.) The date given by Taylor seems 
to be a mistake. The date of death given in the Madras 
Almanac is 1st Mar.; and Rev. Maiden's List of burials 
givos the date of burial as 2nd March 1819. She was a Miss 
Jones and his second wife. A description of her funeral is given 
in the Asiatic Journal of September 1819, 
The Right Hon'ble Hugh Elliot, the younger brother of the first 
Earl of Minto, Governor-General of India, was the second son 
of Sir Gilbert Elliot, third Baronet. Among other children of 
Sir Gilbert's was Eleanor who married, in 1776, William 
first Lord Auckland and was the mother of George second Lord 
Auckland, who was Governor-General of India (1836-1841). 
Mr. Hugh Elliot entered the diplomatic service in early life. 
He soon attained the rank of a Privy Councillor. He was appoint- 
ed Governor of Madras in 1814, the year after the brother's 
retirement, in succession to Sir George Barlow. Mr. Elliot 
was married twice. Firstly to a foreign lady, Charlotte, widow 
of M. von Krauth, from whom he obtained a divorce in 1793 ; 
and secondly to Miss Margaret Jones. She died in Madras. 
By his first wife Mr. Elliot had one daughter, Isabella, who 
married Mr. George Payne, in 1810 and died in 1826. By his 
second wife he had six sons and three daughters. The sons 
were (1) Henry, who entered the Army and died in 1842 ; (2) 
Edward Francis, a former Chief Magistrate of Police, Madras, 
who was a terror to the rowdies of his time. In the early 
thirties he brought to book three notorious burglars and saw

River is so named, not from Mr. Hugh Elliot, the Governor 
of Madras, but from Mr, (afterwards Sir) Walter Elliot, who 
was a prominent member of the Madras Government, during 
the Administration of Lord Harris (1854-59). Sir Walter 
belonged to the same stock and was probably descended from 
Gilbert Elliot of Stobs, the common ancestor of the Elliots of 
Minto and of General George Elliot, Baron Heathfiold, t he gallant 
defender of Gibraltar against tho united fleets and armies of 
France and Spain. Sir Walter wrote on a vast range of subjects, 
archaeology, natural history and numismatics, and was in 
correspondence with the celebrated Charles Darwin. The 
Amravathi marbles in the British Museum were presented to 
that institution by Sir Walter. He died in 1877. 
The Countess of Minto, the distinguished recipient of the Kaisar- 
i-Hind Medal, in recognition of her charity and benevolence 
towards suffering humanity, comes from a fine stock. She is the 
grand-daughter of Charles second Earl Grey, who was first Lord 
of the Treasury (1830-34) during tho first Administration of 
King William TV. Lord Macaulay, writing in 1840, refers to 
this eminent statesman, in the following words. " But those 
who, within the last ten years, have listened with delight, till tho 
morning sun shone on the tapestries of the House of Lords, to 
the lofty and animated eloquence of Charles Earl Grey, are able 
to form some estimate of tho powers of a race of men, among 
whom lie was not the foremost." 

413 11th Dec. Sib Alexander Hero are deposited the remains of General Sir Alexander 
1824. Campbell, Bart. Campbell, Bart, and K.C.B., Commander-in-Chief of the

Also of Olympia his first wife, daughter of Sir John Mors- 
head, Bart of Trenant Park, Cornwall, who died 24th Decem- 
ber 1794, aged 38 years. The tablet was erected by their 
grandsons, Sir Alexander Cockburn Campbell, Bart., and 
Lieut.-General George Alexander Malcolm, C.B. 

He entered the British Army as early as the year 177G. He was 
appointed an ensign in the Royals, and was promoted to the 
rank of lieutenant in the same eorps, 25th December 1778. 
In the month of April 1780, he obtained a company in the 97th 
Regiment of Foot, and served in that corps at the celebrated 
siege of Gibraltar, in 1782. He was soon afterwards placed 
upon half-pay ; but in December 1787 he was attachod to the 
74th regiment. He became major by brevet in 1794, and 
obtained a majority in the before-named regiment in the suc- 
oeeding year. Soon after he had risen to the rank of lieut. 
colonel (4th December 1795), he accompanied the 74th to India, 
and rendered himself very conspicuous in the Mysore war, and 
at the capture of Seringapatam in 1799. One exploit which he

(3) (4) 


performed upon this occasion, and which created groat confusion 
in the Sultan's army, was an attack upon a circular work, from 
winch he dislodged the enemy with great gallantry, pursuing 
them across the bridge of communication, and entoring the 
island with the fugitives. Ue came upon the right of the 
Sultan's entrenched camp, where he bayoneted some of the 
enemy in their tents, and spiked several guns. 

He attained the rank of colonel in the army in Septembor 1803 ; 
and when the present Duke of Wellington commenced his cam- 
paigns in Spain, Col. Campbell servod in his army with the rank 
of brigadier-general. 

In the arduous conflicts which attended the commencement of 
that war, so gloriously terminated, Brigadier Campbell groatly 
distinguished himself ; but particularly at the severo and well 
contested battle of Talavera, 27th July 1809. 

Upon that occasion he was posted in a commanding spot of ground 
between the two armies. When the enemy had been defeated 
on other points, he commenced a desperate attack upon General 
Campbell's position. Tho result is best expressed in the concise 
but flattering words of the Duke of Wellington : " This attack 
was most successfully repulsed by Brig. Gen. A. Campbell, 
who took the enemy's cannon ; and I was highly satisfied with 
the manner in which this part of the position was defended." 

In tho gonoral ordors published at home soon after this action 
his Majesty, in communicating his approbation of the conduct 
of the several general and other officers at the battle of Talavera, 
observed that the instances of their previous gallantry had 
not escaped him ; and a comment upon this remark subse- 
quently appeared in a list of the names of officers, to whom a 
modal was awarded for their distinguished services at Roleia, 
Vimiera, Corunna, and Talavera, among which we find that of 
Brigadier General Campbell. 

In December 1809, Col. Campbell obtained the colonelcy of the 
York Light Infantry Volunteers; and in July 1810, he was 
advanced to tho rank of major general. 

At the actions of Cazal Nova and Foy d' Aronce, in March 1811, 
Major Gen. Campbell found new opportunities of distinguishing 
himself; and his name is montionod in the despatches of the 
commander of the combined army with commendation. 

Next year he was appointed to tho commander-in-chief of the 
forces at the island of Mauritius ; and was made lieut.-general 
in Juno 1814. He returned to England in 1819 ; and was 
appointed, in tho latter end of 1820, to the post of commander- 
in-chief of the army at the Presidency of Fort St. George, with 
the rank of full general in the East-Indies. 

In November 1824, General Campbell suffered an attack of apop- 
lexy ; he partially recovered, and great hopes were entertained 
that ho would be enabled to overcomo the effects of it ; but a 
further attack terminated his life on the 11th December, in 
the sixty -fifth year of his ago. 

Every testimony of respect towards his memory was manifested 
by the Government and the army. At the funeral, which took 
place in the ensuing day, the governor and members of council 
at Fort St. George officiated as pall-bearers ; minute-guns were 
fired from tho fort-battery ; and nearly the whole of the gentle* 
men of the socioty of the presidency joined the procession, 
which was accompanied by a vast conoourse of natives. 

The Government General Orders, dated the 1 1th day of Decem- 
ber, contained the following tribute to the memory of the 
deceased general : 

" With much grief the Hon. the Governor in Council announces 
to the army the demise of His Exo- General Sir Alexander

Presidency, which took place this morning at eight o'clock 
a.m. Sir A. Campbell's close connexion with the army 
of Fort St. George, and his cordial attachment to it, which 
had aubsisted for a period of thirty years, were confirmed by 
his share in some of its most honourable achievements, and 
completed by the high station which he filled at the termi- 
nation of his distinguished career." 
General Campbell was a Baronet, and a Knight Commander of the 
Moat Honourable Military Order of the Bath. He was twice 
married : first to Miss Morshoad, sister of Sir John Morshead, 
Bart., of Tronant Park, Cornwall, by whom ho had two sons 
(both of whom fell in action) and three daughters. The eldest 
daughter Olympia married Alexander Cockburn, Esq., of Madras 
and perished at sea. The second daughter Charlotte married 
Major General Sir John Malcolm, G. 0. H., of Hyde Hall, Saw- 
bridgeworth. The youngeat married Lieut. Col. Macdonald 
Kinneir. Sir Alexander's second wife, was a daughter of the 
late Kev. Thomas Pemberton, and by her he had a daughter. 
The baronetcy descended by special provision to the issue of his 
daughters successively. (Asiatic Journal : June 1825.) 

To Lt.-Col. Hkkcules Henry Pepper, 34th Light Infantry, 
who died at Fort St. George, 25th July 1820, aged 42, dis- 
tinguished on various occasions by a rare onergy of character 
and ardent zeal and devoted gallantry. These qualities 
ho particularly displayed whilst commanding a brigade of 
the Madras Army in Pegu in the Burmese war. And to 
Lt.-Col. Conry, 3rd Lt. Infantry, Captain Cursham, 1st 
Eur. Regt., Captain Stedman, 34th Lt. Infantry, Lieut. 
Adams, 8th Lt. Infantry, who animated with the same 
spirit and emulating the example of their intrepid leader 
were killed at Setong in January 1826. This monument 
is raised by several of their friends in the Coast Army. 

The monument was made by Mr. George Clarke of Covent Garden 
a young artist of great merit. The monument is a military figuro 
larger than life in the uniform of the Light Infantry of the 
Madras army, with a cloak thrown loosely over the shoulder. 
(Asiatic Journal : Aug. 1830.) 
Captain John Cambridge Stedman of 34th Regiment, Chicacole 
Light Infantry, commanding centre column of attack, and 
Captain Cursham were killed at the capture of the Setong 
stockade (midway between Shewgun and Martaban) on the 
Uth January 1826. "The fire from the enemy was most 
heavy and destructive and the obstacles to be surmounted by 
our troops were of no common kind ; every man having been 
up to his neck in water while crossing the creek." Colonel 
Conry and Lieutenant Adams were killed on the 7th in a preli- 
minary attack which failed. Colonel Pepper was slightly 
wounded and died in Madras six months afterwards. Thig 
monument is a statue of him by G. Clarke, *' the Birmingham 
Chantrey." Stedman was son of Lieutenant-Colonel John 
Gabriel Stedman (1744-97), author of the well-known work on 
Surinam, who married firstly Joanna, a native of Surinam and 
secondly Adriana Louisa, daughter of Adrian Wiertz von 
Cochorn, grand-daughter of General Baron Wiertz Van Cochorn, 
the celebrated military engineer. John Stedman's daughter by 
his second wife Sophia Charlotte married John Cotton, C.S. 
October 10th, 1807, at Negapatam, and their son Captain 
J. S. Cotton died at Chittoor, October 17th, 1843 (No. 1157). 
Of 25 officers present, 2 were killed and 5 wounded, one danger- 
ously shot. Our gallant leader Capt. Cursham fell outside the 
stockade shot through the heart by a musket ball. 
" The two officers killed were Captains Cursham and Stedman 
both Commanding columns. I must not omit to mention that 
both the columns did their work admirably throughout especially

415 Gth July Sir Thomas Mraito, Near this stone are deposited the remains of Major-General 
1827. Bart, Sik Thomas Munro, Bart., k.c.b., Governor of the Presi- 

dency of Fort St. George, who after 47 years of distinguished 
civil and military services, seven of which he passed at the 
head of that Government under which he first served as a 
cadet, was suddenly called from his labours on the 6th of 
July 1827 at a moment "when," in the language of the 
Honorable Court of Directors, "he was on the point of 
returning to his native land in the enjoyment of well-earned 
honors from his Sovereign and from the Company, having 
recently manifested a new proof of his zeal and devotion in 
retaining charge of the Government of Madras after he had 
intimated his wish to retire therefrom and at a period when 
the political stato of India rendered the discharge of the 
duties of that high and honorable station "peculiarly 
arduous and important." Aetat. 65. Sir Thomas Munro 
was from the earliest period of Ms career remarkable 
amongst other men. All those who were associated with 
him at the commencement of his service, many of whom 
have since become illustrious in the annals of India and of 
their country, yielded to him with common consent that 
pre-eminence which belonged to the ascendency of his 
character. The rosources of his mind rose superior to 
every emergency of civil government or military enterprise 
and he united to these great qualities an unpretending 
modesty (that exalted sign of innate worth) which courted 
no applause and which would have obstructed his advance- 
ment had not Ms transcendent merits in the cabinet and 
in the field forced him into public notice and elevated him 
to the highest office of this Presidency. 

Of him Canning said " Europe never produced a more accom- 
plished statesman nor India, so fertile in heroes, a more skilful 
soldier." Ho died of cholora at Patticondah, near Gooty, when 
making a farewell tour through the Ceded Districts on the eve 
of his retirement from the Government. His remains were 
brought to Madras in 1831 and re-interred in St. Mary's 
Churoh, Fort St. George on 21st April 1831. There is an 
equestrian statue of him by Chantrey on the Island, and a 
portrait by Sir Martin Archer Shee in the Banqueting Hall.

daughter of Richard Campbell, of Craigie, county Ayrshire, 
whose picture by Lawrence hangs in the drawing room of 
Government House. Munro's father was a Glasgow merchant 
trading to Virginia. His nephew John Collins Munro, Sub- 
Collector of the Southern Mahratta Doab, was killed together 
with St. John Thackeray, Principal Collector, at the reduction 
of Kittoor, October 23rd, 1824 (see No. 1661). 
Munro Bridge, Chetput, was named after Sir Thomas Munro, 
during whose Governorship it was built.

43<> 7th Nov. Sir John Doveton. Sacred to the memory of Lieutenant General Sir John Dove- 
1847. ton, g.c.b., of the Honorable East India Company's Service 

who departed this life on the 7th November A.D. 1847 
aged 77 years in the hope of a blessed immortality. 

Of tho many Anglo-Indian Families closely connected wifch the 
city of Madras, the Doveton family is one of the most well 
known. This is partly duo to the magnificent style in which 
Sir John Dovoton, the Commander-in-Chief, lived, and partly 
to the association of his name with the Doveton College. Born 
in 1770. the son of Mr. Frederick Doveton, a merchant of 
London, John Doveton arrived in India in 1783, when only 
13 years of age. He was present at most of the important 
actions that wero fought during tho wars of the eighteenth 
century in Southorn India. Ho assisted Colonel Wellesley in 
the pursuit of the notorious brigand, Dhoondia Waugh, for 
which he received the Colonel's thanks. Another pursuit in 
which he distinguished himself was that of the Peishwa, Baji 
Kao, in 1818 which led to his surrender. This march produced 
a profound impression at the time. 44 The long and close 
pursuit," wrote Sir Thomas Munro, " by the Force under 
Brigadier General Doveton, was the immediate cause of the 
breaking up of his (the Peishwa 'a) army. He was not allowed 
time to rout or to feed his horses.'* Baji Rao was heard to say 
to his Minister something more than that : — 44 As for General 
Smith " (who had been pursuing his defoat at Ashtee in 1817), 
*' I don't care about him. I tan turn him and drop him when- 
ever I please ; but as for that little fellow, General Doveton, he 
keeps so close to me that I can scarce call a halt my own." The 
last great military service Doveton rendered was in the taking 
of the hill fortress of Assirghur, in 1819 in which he was assisted 
by Sir John Malcolm. Doveton being the senior of the two, 
settled the plan of attack, which was completely successful. 
For this he received the thanks of the Governor-General, who 
requested him to accept his " warmest thanks for the vigour, 
spirit, skill and judgment of his operations," to which His 
Excellency mainly attributed hie rapid success. He also 
received the thanks of tho Commander-iii-Chiof of Madras and 
of both Houses of Parliament. He was created a C.B. on the 
14th October 1818, and a K.C.B. on the 26th November, 1819. 
On the 12th August of the latter year, he was promoted Major- 
General, but resigned the Command of the Hyderabad Contin- 
gent, which he was instrumental in raising, and returned to 
Madras in the following year, when the Governor-General 
issued a most flattering General Order to tho troops of the 
throe Presidencies. In 1821, Doveton was placed in Command 
of the Ceded Districts, and not long afterwards commanded the 
Centre Division of the Madras Army, with Cuddalore as his 
Headquarters. The Judge's bungalow at the latter Station is 
still known after him, and was built by him about 1825. Be- 
tween 1832 and 1852, he occupied what are now the Tindivanam 
Sub-Collector's office and bungalow, which latter he built. 
From January to March, 1820, he acted as Commander-in-Chief 
of Madras, pending the arrival of Sir George Walker. He 
resigned his Command in 1829, but early in 1837 he was pro- 
moted Lieutenant -General, and on the 10th March following 
created a G.C.B. After his retirement, he lived in that fine

building in Nungambaukam, which is now known after him 
as Dove ton House, and was the residence of Sir Ralph Benson. 
It is said to have been built by Mr. Benjamin Roebuck ,a former 
Madras Civilian and uncle of the great Parliamentarian. Many 
of the older Indians in and around Egmore still remember the 
magnificent style in which the General lived here. He lived, 
it is said, the life of a Brahmin, though he received European 
visitors and was President of tho Madras Club for two succes- 
sive yoars (1834-1835). He had a complete establishment 
including an Apothocary, in his own house and several Brahmin 
families lived in tho grounds, and all the children born in it 
bore, and their descendants of to-day still bear, Dove ton as a 
suffix to their Hindu names. He whs a highly charitable man, 
and when ho died, on the 7th November, 1847, his house wai 
tilled with all classes of .Indians, and the funeral procession, it 
has boon remarked, was swelled to unmanageable proportions 
by thorn. It was attended by the leading citizens of Madras ; 
including the Marquis of Tweeddale, the Governor and Com- 
mander in Chief. Ho was buried in St. Mary's Church, Fort 
St. George, between Sir Alexander Campbell, and Sir 1 homes 
Munro, and the inscription on his tomb-stone is a simple one, 
recording nothing more than his age and date of death. The 
major portion of his property he left to his Brahmin Steward, 
who had accompanied him in all his wanderings, and whose 
many descendants still retain the prenomen of Doveton. 

A cousin of Sir John, usually styled 44 Senior " was the other Sir 
John Doveton, tho son of Sir William Webber Doveton, who is 
described in old Madras Almanacs as " Junior." He was born 
about 1783, and joined the East India Company's Military 
Service in 1798. Ho became A.D.C. to the Marquis of Wollesley, 
while Governor-General of India, and saw service in the cam- 
paign of 1799-1803 against tho Mahrattas, as also in that of 
1817. In 1833, he commanded a Division in the Nizam's 
Contingent- — raisod by his cousin- — and was created a K.C.B. 
in 1838, and a General in 1854. He died on the 23rd September, 
1857. Sir John (Senior) had a brother in the Madras Military 
Service. This was Sir Michael Doveton, who entered the 7th 
Madras Cavalry, through his brother's influence. While a Major, 
he distinguished himself greatly in the earlier stages of the 
pursuit of the Peishwa by Brigadier-General Smith. Ho also 
took a prominent part in the cavalry combat at Ashtoo on the 
20th May 1818, in which Gokla was killed, with immense loss, 
and was thanked in the Orders of the day. He successively 
became C.B. and K.C.B. and retired to England, where he died, 
Another brothor of Sir John (Senior) was Sir William Doveton 
a Governor of St. Helena when it was a possession of the East 
India Company. 

Sir Michael Doveton's natural son was John Doveton, the name- 
father of the Doveton Colleges of Madias and Calcutta. So 
little is known of this member of tho family t hat it is necessary 
to set down a few details about him. He was educated at the 
44 Egmore School", tho old name of tho Military Male Orphan 
Asylum, which was established in 1789 in the old Egmoro 
Redoubt by Dr. Andrew Boll, of whom a fine picture is given 
by Sir Charles Lawson in his *' Memories of Madras.'* When 
he grow up he, through the influonce of his uncle (Sir John, 
14 Senior"), who had evinced a kindly interest in his early 
training and education, entered, in 1817, the Berar Brigade and 
rose to be a Captain. He commanded a squadron of 
Horse in the reduction of Chanda, the ancient Capital of 
Nagpur, in April 1818. About August of the same year he 
garrisoned the Nagpur country evacuated by his uncle just 
before the battle of Assirghur. An unfortunate circumstance 
soon afterwards led to his resigning the Nizam's Servioe.

His economical habits allowed him to save a little money 
in the Nizam's Service, which was augmented by 
a subsequent legacy left to him by Sir John 
(Senior). After resigning office he returned to Madras 
and lived a quiet and retired life. Mr. Peter Carstairs, a Eura- 
sian gentleman of exemplary character, induced him (as hi» 
business manager) to divide his fortune between Madras and 
Calcutta for the support of Eurasian education. This advice 
was folio wod, and John, after appointing as his executors Mr. 
Carstairs and Mr. Byrne of Calcutta, with whom he had corres- 
ponded for sorao time, left India and '* distinguished himself 
in London by his penurious habits on the one hand and his 
ultra-radicalism in Indian matters on the other.** He died on 
the 15th October, 1854, and his bequest of about £50,000 became 
at once available for equal division between the Calcutta Ori- 
ental Academy (now called the Doveton College), and '* a similar 
institution on tho Coast of Coromandel," to be established within 
two years of his decease, failing which the moiety was to lapse 
to the Calcutta institution. On the 5th May, 1864, the Madras 
Parental Academic Institution and Doveton College was 
founded, and in March, 1855, the Captain's endowment was 
increased by Us. 1,25,000 subscribed by the publio for a Protes- 
tant College and the name of the institution was changed to 
tho " Madras Doveton Institution and Protestant College 
John Doveton had two brothers, Henry Bazott and Edward 
both of whom died young. The former was a Captain in the 
4th Regiment Light Cavalry, and was buried at Wallajahbad ; 
and the latter was A.D.C. to his uncle Sir John (" Senior ") 
and died in Calcutta on the 10th April 1823, aged 22. Both of 
theso figure in this " List of Tombs *\ with John Holroyd 
Doveton, who rose to be Colonel of Madras Cavalry, and later 
British Consul at Pondicherry, where he lies buried. 
The Officer in charge of Tipoo's sons when they were hostages in 
1792 was Captain Gabriel Doveton, another nephew of Sir 
John (Senior). He was also the person who conducted the boys 
back to Tippu, who received them in his camp at Devanhalli. 
An exceedingly interesting account of the interview that Tippu 
granted to him at tho time is to be found in Wilk's " History 
of Mysore " while a contemporary description of it may be read 
in tho pagos of that old Madras paper, the Hircarrah. Tho 
hostages woro sont back on the 26th February, 1793, and the 
Hircarrah gave the following account of their ceremonial recep- 
tion by Tippu : — 
" There was nothing pompous or magnificent about the tent, not 
even a single omamont in it ; notwithstanding thoro was some- 
thing charming and agrooable in the plain and noat aspect it 
woro. The Sultan sat in the centre, betwoon tho pillars of the 
tent, reclining a little, with his right eido on a very low muenad 
or cushion, covered with red velvet, embroidered with gold. 
His seat was not much above the level of the floor, covored like 
the cushion. At his right hand lay his sword with an enamelled 
hilt, and in a red volvot scabbard. The Princes 8 at at a little 
distance behind him on his right. His principal ministers and 
officers ranged in two lines, fronting each other; Captain 
Doveton, to whom the Sultan was very attentive, on the right ; 
and Gholam Ally, in his silver chair, very near him on the same 
side. Tho two Princes mado a very interesting appearance t 
elegantly and neatly dressed. The Sultan's dress was perfectly 
plain, without jowols, or any ornament. He wore a deep red 
turban, of the same form worn by the Princes ; his gown of plain 
muslin, and a dagger in his girdle. All his great men were in 
the same style of dress ; and no reserve or timidity among 
them, but all perfectly at their ease and cheerful." 

The presents given to the Princes in Madras before i/hoir depar- 
ture wore many and varied. One of these, given by Sir Charles 
Oakley, the Governor, was " a very complete and comprehen- 
sive philosophical apparatus, procured from the Rev. Dr. Bell,

who sent also tho person hitherto employed by him in the 
management and use of it." Two very elegant pocket books 
from Lady Oakley were, wo are told, received with particular 
pleasure by the young Princes. The Nawab's present included 
two palankeens, finished in tho most costly manner and of the 
finest workmanship. This palankeen was taken at the fall of 
Seringapatam and bocame part of tho prize money. This ^amo 
Officer — Captain Gabriel Doveton- — was deputed by Lord 
Cornwall^ to interviow Tippu on the eve of tho last Mysore

033 14th Mar. Elizabeth De Elizabeth, the beloved wife of Major T. F. de Havilland 
1818. Havilland. of Engineers, and daughter of T. de Sausniarez of Guernsey, 

Esq., Attorney -General in that Island, died at the early age 
of 35 years. She is gone to her God whom she served with 
zeal and sincerity leaving an afflicted husband and four 
children to mourn her loss and to emulate her example ; her 
enlightened mind was an ornament to society in which she 
stood highly respected, and, in the social duties of wife, 
mother, daughter, sister and friend, she shone with superior 
virtue. These virtues emanated from a warm and affection- 
ate heart and were confirmed in true piety - to charity ever 
disposed, the deserving were never sent empty away. 
The Almighty Disposer of events bade purity and virtue lead 
the way, the name of tins recorded worth here sought repose 
ere the cemetery was completed, and the afflicted husband 
who was forming it for public use submitted with 
pious revcrenoe to the inscrutable ways of Providence which 
thus made him her protector in death as in life. She stands 
first in the awful book and gives a date to the register. 

Fiott do Havilland was a distinguished civil engineer and architect. 
He was Civil Engineer and Architect to the Madras Government, 
between 1814 and 1825. Hn was, perhaps, the most original 
man of his timo. He belonged to the Island of Guernsey, where 
he was born on April 10th. 1775, being tho son of Sir Peter do 
Havilland, and came out to India at a Cadet in 1793 and in the 
name year wa<* appointed Ensign to the Madras Engineers. 
In 1799 ho took part in the War against Tippu, which ended 
in tho restoration of the now ruling Dynasty of Mysore. He 
married Miss Elizabeth de Saumarez in 1808. (One of his 
children, a daughter, wan born at Chittoor in Nov. 25, 1815 — 
Asiatic Journal, July 1816.) He returned home in 1812, but 
came to Madras as Civil Engineer and Architect of the Pre si- 
dency in 1814, in which position he continued till he left India 
for good in 1825. During a holiday at Guernsey in 1812, he 
built the Jeybourg Barracks. On his return to Madias he 
constructed .several public works of importance, the sea wall 
of Madras, highly commended by Sir Thomas Munro, then 
Governor of Madras ; the St. Andrew s Church (or Kirk), which 
was designed and built by him, was begun in 1818 (on the site 
of the old Ellis Cutcherry) and finishod about 1 821 , 41 remarkabl e 
for its beauty, both as to exterior and interior " ; the St. 
Andrew's Bridge closo by the Church and tho Mount Road. He 
also built the St. George's Cathedral in 1816 and widened the 
Walajah Bridge in 1820. He had a son born on 22nd June 1817 
(Asiatic Journal, Jan. 1818). In 1808 while at Seringapatam 
he proposed to bridge the Cauvery by Ave brick arches

This proposal having been received with incredulity, he built 
an experimental arch in accordance with his design in his garden

Petrus Uscan de Coja Pogus, Armenus, cuius cor Julfce, 
annos natus 70, e vita cecessit 15 Januarii 1751. 

Pogose is the Armenian for Paul. Khojah is a corruption of the 
Persian Khwajoh," signifying a man of distinction. Petrus 
was the son of Khojah Woskan or Uscan and a grandson of 
Khojah Pogope of Julfa. Ho was tho most notable Ai-menian 
of his day in Madras and is said to have boon at one time a 
Member of Council. In 1725 he built the Marmalong Bridge 
and in 1726 placed steps fiom the foot to the summit of St. 
Thomas* Mount. The concluding words of his epitaph " cuius 
cor Julfra " refer to the bringing of his heart in a golden casket 
from Madras to be buried at Julfa in Ispahan. An oil-painting 
of the Khojah was executed at Madras in 1737 and is now in 
All Saviour's Catherdal at Julfa. Upon it is painted a heart, 
with the following distich : — 

'* My heart longs for home, where, should I be unable toJfco, 
I desire that, when my last day comes, my heart be sent 
to my native land, so that I, Petrus Uscan, ['may have 
a grave there. " 

Uscan was a Catholic and had bought the ground wheie he lies 
buried and built a chapel upon it to our Lady of Miracles, 
making the Capuchin father Severini his executor. Aft-er his 
death the Madras Government put the 8.P.C.K. missionaries 
in possession of the Church and premises. 

In 1787 the Mission owned : — 

** The Church at Vepery near Madras. The Mission House and 
a Garden belonging to it. A burying ground adjoining to the 
garden. Two apartments for the Portuguese and English 
Schoolmasters. A burying ground in the Black Town of 
Madras. A small house near the Mission Garden, the legacy 
of Mrs. Bonwyn : and a small piece of paddy field." (The 
Garden then extended over what is termed Church Street, 
including the locality of houses on its southern side). Taylor 
page 54. 

The paddy fields were resumed by Government and Gericke 
was put off with free postage and a bit of ground near Korka 
pettah, (the Washerman's gate), since resumed as being on 
the esplanade. 

The place on which the new Church was built (in 1816) was a 
garden of plantain trees. Not a trace of the old buildings 
remains save at the north-east corner of the premises in the 
form of outhouses (p. 133). 

The first missionaries had acquired land on the western boun- 
dary of the Fort Esplanade. The property there was da 
maged or destroyed by the French under LaBourdonnais. 
The Government, at the instance of Admiral Boscawen, gave 
to the Missionary the confiscated ground and Church, and 
houses in lieu of the damaged property or that required for 
the Esplanade* It has been made a question if it was given 
to the Mission or to the Missionary. The reply evidently 
is, it was given to the Missionary for the use of the mission 
(p. 143). Pohle and KohlhofT (16th November 1817 letter) 
never were missionaries at Madras and they had no power to

Baron Hkidemauz a (ierman Captain whom Kohlhoff had 
visited at Seringham in 1757, gave ordeis to his hussars to

Rev. John Rottler, d.d., aged 86 years and 7 months and 
Clara Elizabeth his wife who departed this life 27th Sep- 
tember 1827, aged 74 years and 4 months. 

Rottler was an eminent botanist as well as divine. He was 
greater still as a linguist, grammarian and translator. He 
resided in India sixty years, partly at Tranquebar and partly 
(1803-36) at Madras. Ho was a native and graduate of Stras- 
burg and on April 27th, 1788, married at Cochin tho widow of 
a Dutch sea captain, named Schaak. He arrived at Tranquebar 
in 1776; went to Madras 1803; was employed by the S.P.G. 
and subsequently by the S.P.C.K. 1817. Ho died of paralysis. 
(Asiatic Journal, Dec. 1832). Rottler*s Lane adjoins the Vepery 
Church and contains a bungalow still known as " Rottler s 
House. " 

Rottler's diploma in Natural Philosophy was granted to Dr. John 
of Tranquobar and himself in common. It was issuod under 
tho imperial authority of Leopold 1st, by Christian Daniel 
Schrebor, President of the imperial academy of natural curio- 
sities and is dated at Erlanger, the 30th April 1795. Dr. Rottler 
was low in stature and of delicato make. A very pretty dos* 
oription of Swartz's garden was written by him and first appearod 
in Jaenicke's life. Dr. Claudius Buohannan, who saw him at 
Tranquebar mentioned him as a good man of retiring dispOHition 
and 4 * deficient in enorgy " (Taylor's Memoir, etc., p. 111-112.) 

Rov. Charles William Paezold died on the 4th Novomber 1817

Rottlor (W. Taylor's Memoir of the First Centenary of the 
Earliest Protestant Mission at Madras, p. 133). His executors

Paezold lived in the Mission House (Gtericke s bequeathed 
one) and Dr. Rottler tenanted another house at tho back of 
tho Vepery Church (to tho northern end to the mission com- 
pound as I understand it) which is not now in being (Taylor's

hill station and he had turned it to account as a Sanitarium. 
It was in 1824, that he was quartered at Satara when he under*

armed through the dense jungle to Mahabaleshwar. He got 
through safely, but his dog was killed by a panther on the

The French Capuchin mission of Madras was founded in 1642 under the sanction of Pope Urban VIII by the well-known Father 
Bphraim. When the friars built their Armenian stroot church in 1675, they inscribed the date 1642 over tho gatos as a 
public record of thoir first establishment in Madras, and on a later occasion (1721) when tho church was repaired and the 
gates widonod, the date was retained. The earliest Capuchins in the city wore Ephraim do Nevors, Zenon do Baugd, Cosine 
de Giers, Jacques do Bourges, Esprit de Tours, Laurent d'AngouK-me, Michel Ange de Bourges, Ren6 d'AngoiuVmo and 
Thomas de Poitiers. The last named built in 1675 the church of St. Andrew within tho Fort, which was confiscated and 
destroyed aftor Lally's Biego (see No. 24). "On 11th May 1687 died Padre Zenono, one of the old French Padres 
aged 85 years, onterred in the Church n (Love II-Page 46). An interesting account of Father Ephraim will be found 
in Ta vernier. Father Ephraim came from Auxerre in the northern part of the province of Burgundy, on the banks of the 
Youne and was a brother of M. de Chatean Les Bois, Counsellor of the Parliament of Paris. In 1694 died Father 
Ephraim after no less than fifty-two years of arduous and self-sacrificing service in Madras. In 1700 the Council 
dealt with a petition received from ' Padres Michad Anjo, Jacques, Espirito and Ri nato * regarding the recent 
discontinuance of certain small doles from Government which for many years were issued. Padro Michiel Angelus 
died about tho beginning of 1708 and Padre Renatus succeeded him. When Friar Paolino das Bartolomeo went to

uel Moorat, Esq., eldest son of the late Samuel Mookartish 
Moorat, Esq., born 28th September 1793. His brother 
John Samuel Moorat, as a tribute of affection, inscribed this 
tablet to his memory.— R.l.P- 

Edward Moorat lived in the house known as the Old College. 
Moorat 'a Gardens were lately the office of the Director of Publio 
Instruction. They were purchased by Government for 
Ka. 90,000 in 1827, and on March 17, 1830 Mr. Moorat parted 
with the Pantheon fi.r Ks. 28,000 which is tho nucleus of the 
spreading block of buildings that now make up the Madras 
Museum. Umda 13agh, Poodoopauk also belonged to him. 
It was occupied by tho Begum of the last titular Nawab of the 
Oarnatic. The brothers Moorat married in 1813 two sisters, the 
daughters of Mr. J. S. White of Pondicherry. 

Mrs. Edward Moorat gave birth to a son and heir (Asiatic Journal, 
February 1816). 

John Samuel Moorat, Esq., of Buswill Park near Edmonton, 
Middlesex and of Gloucester Square, Hyde Park W., was the 
younger son of the Samuel Moorat of Madras by Anne daughter 
of Edward Kaphiel of Madras. Ho was born 1796 and married 
Marie Dolphine, the second daughter of Joseph White of Pondi- 
cherry on June 14, 1813. Edward Samuel White married 
Miss Maria Virginia White, tho eldest daughter of Joseph White 
of Pondicherry on May 13, 1813. At St. Georgos Church, 
Madras on January 27, 1817, Captain John May no of tho Hon. 
Company's Ship Batavia married Mrs. T. E. White widow of 
Captain John White, Commissary General on tho establish- 
ment, daughter of the late Chevalier do gronier do Eonclaro 
and the then lady Chalmers (See No. 2808). Dr. John Douglas 
White gave his name to White's Road (Doctor White's Garden, 
in Poodoopauk). He obtained a grant of land in Poodoopauk 
in 1809 (Love iii-573). Ho built the house which forms the 
nucleus of the Madras Club. 

Erected by T. Chaverymootoo Moodelliar to tho memory of lug 
dear child Elizabeth, god daughter of the venerable and 
illustrious Abb6 Dubois, who departed this life on the 13th 
July 1839, aged 27 years, leaving her affectionate husband 
P. Suryahootarnaroya Moodelliar with 5 children and 
numerous affectionate relatives to lament her loss. 

Tho connexion of the Abbe" Dubois with this family may perhaps 
oxplain the pregonco of his portrait in the Conncmara Library, 
where he is pain tod as a white Brahmin from the West, wearing 
a flowing turban and holding in one hand the seven knotted 
bamboo staff that tradition assigns to every Hindoo pilgrim. 
In the presbytery of his former church at Soringapatam was 
preserved till quite recently the block of wood upon which this 
turban was daily rolled. Joan Antoine Dubois was born at 
Saint Remeze in 1765, ordained in the diocese of Viviers in 1792 
and left France for Pondicherry in the same year. He quitted 
India on January 15th, 1823, and died at Paris in 1848. His 
relations with the family of the deceasod were very intimate 
as may be judged from the following letter : —

find a long note on pardao in the Supplement to Yule and Bur-

vicar of Cuddalore. The English Govornor answered him, 
as follows : — " I acknowledge your civility in giving me notice 
of your determination, but I admire at your usurpation of an 
authority which did not belong to your predecessor, nor to 
yourself and successors, viz., to appoint vicars in any place 
under tho English Government. You have made a wrong 
account, and if you would reckon right, must begin again. In 
this case I ought to deal plainly with you, that no foreign Epis- 
copal authority can be admitted within the limits of our juris- 
diction, and that you are not Govomor or Bishop of Cuddalore 
no more than of Madras. But as your reverence is Bishop 
or Governor of Moliapore, I congratulate your accession to that 
authority, and dosiro and embrace your friendly and neigh- 
bourly correspondence ; in pursuance of which I acquaint 
your reverence that I have determined to permit Padre Guliolmus 
a Valle, of tho order of the Thoatines to reside at Cuddalore 
in the room of Padre Don John Do Clerici deceased. I am 
your friend and servant Nathaniol Higginson."

The Kev. Arratoon Shumavon (or Simeon), a native of Shiraz, 
published in 1794 whon incumbent of the Armenian Church 
at Madras the first known Armenian newspaper, under the 
namo of the " Azzdarar " or Intel ligonoer, which lastod for 
oighteon months. Its centonary was celobrated in 1894 by 
Armenian journalists throughout the world, and in the same 
year the Mekhitharist religious society at Vienna published a 
life and portrait of the father of Armenian journalism. Tt 
was at the monastery of this order on the island of St. Lazare 
near Venice, that Byron studied Armenian in 1816 and wrote 
to Mr. Murray, 4< I find the language (which is twin, the liberal 
and tho vulgar) difficult, but not invincible ; at least I hope 
not. I shall go on. I found it nocossary to twist my mind 
round some sovoror study, and this, as being tho hardost T could

There is a statuo of Byron in tho adjoining gardens of the Zappeion 
at Athens, which takes its name from the two brothers Zappa, 
who gave the building for the purpose of holding exhibitions of 
Greek industries. Byron lived a stone's throw. The Franciscan 
convent whence he wrote ** I am living with a friar (a capuchin 
of course), a frier (a bandy-legged Turkish cook), two albanian 
savages, and a Dragoman " has long disappeared. Us site is 
an irregular open space surrounding the monument of Lysicrates, 
a structure which figures in manuals of Greek art as the earliest 
examplo of Corinthian. It is columnar and about six foot in 
diameter, with no means of access and isolated, so that t he story 
that it Horved as a study would seem at first sight to be a myth. 
It is explained, however, by the fact that the monument was 
encrusted in an angle of the convent, where it formed a sort 
of alcove and was used as a book closet. Dodwell who was 
there before Byron, has an engraving showing tho arrangement 
in his "Classical Tour." It whs a handy retreat, and there is 
little doubt that in it Byron wrote at least, '* The Curse of 
Minerva " which he dated 14 Capuchin Convent, Athens, 
March 17, 1811." The scene of the depredations of the 
"Pictishpeer " overhangs the spot. Lord Elgin in all probability 
saved those marbles for posterity, notwithstanding many a 
statue went into the lime kiln in those days.

The cemetery is at the Momorial Hall end of Mint Stroot. Urquhart nails it the Hebrew burying ground at Hoghill. His 

ourioua name has not survived, but thoro is a Hogtown (Pig village) in tho Eurasian quarter of Vellore. A large spreading 

tree in this cemetery has caught hold of what is an apparent gravestone and lifted it bodily in the air. At Agra is a similar 
Phenomenon of a 44 skyod tombstone." 

In the Cantonment cemetery at Agra, among the quiet graves may be witnessed to-day the last act in Nature's grim 
outrage on the dead. In that hallowod spot whore hearts have bowed in prayer, a giant poopul tree spreading its roots with 
unrelenting force has, after a hundred years, exhumed all that remains of the unknown sleeper. The story of Agra's great peepu 
tree and its captive is told in Capt. Koblo's interesting poem, 44 A Wondrous Tree from which the following is quoted:—- 

44 Beside a woman's sculptured tomb had grown 
A stately palm, that drooped high o'er the stone, 
Its plume-like crost, as though by grief distraught, 
Meanwhile, its stem a peepu 1 seod had caught, 
Which, germinating, fragile tendrils bred, 
That crept to earth, took root, gained strength, and spread 
There, nourished well, they throve, waxed tough entwined, 
Climbed, coalesced, contorted, coiled, combined, 
Suppressed the palm till flow of sap was stopped, 
And, reft of life, its branches— strangled — droppod ! 
Anon, a peepul treo's huge trunk there etood, 
Of cording, curving, convoluting wood, 
With boughs and foliage ranged wide o'erhead ; 
Whoso girth, enlarging as the seasons sped, 
Transgressod the hallowed tomb's encircling zone, 
Until it touched and even graspod the stone. 
Then Lo ! the tree — strange innate force applied — 
Knfolded in its embrace the sculptures wide, 
And marvellously raisod both plinth and them 
To where thoy gleam forth now, high in the stem 1 *'

tho latter years of his Governorship (1687 to 1692). Madam

lies buried at the Cape of Good Hope, bosido her child Charles 
Yale, stylod son of the former Governor of Madras, and it is 
recorded on her tombstone that the mother came from India 
to be buried by her little one's side, anno 1712. (Pennant's

Dutch Governor Loten is as follows : — 44 Hie iacet in tumulo

one of the old houses which may still be seen on the bank of the 
Cooum between Government House and the General Hospital. 
The houses stand back from the little frequented road whioh 
runs through Napier park and along the side of the river to

lie is said to bo a Dutch Jew. He was a diamond merchant ot 

Abendana <liod, appointing Thomas Pitt trustee for his estate. 
The Governor who was about to leave India, declined the trust 
and as Mrs. Abendana was illiterate, four persons wore nomi- 
nated, two by her and two by the councils to go through the 
deceased merchant's papers . (Love IT, p. 7 and note 2.). 

Mr. Abendana' s widow is roforrod to in the following general 
letter of Governor Harrison and Council to the Court of Direc- 
tors, dated September 16th, 1713 : " The design of creating 
a charity school or schools at this place is a very noble one, 
and worthy of the Honourable Society for Promoting Chris- 
tian Knowledge. We will not only bo ready to adjust them 
with the power you have given us, but also with our purses ; 
and tlo not doubt many of our inhabitants will do the same, 
if tho persons they send out are of tompors and qualifications 
fit for tho undertaking. But we hope they will bo English 
and not foreigners. Tho Danish missionaries havo not wanted 
for our assistance on all occasions, though we must still continue 
of opinion that they spend a groat deal of tho Society's money 
to little or no purpose ; and though there may be some good 
men among thorn there is one very turbulent person, of whose 
principles you may please to judge by his contriving the escape 
of Mr. Abondana's widow from her creditors here to Tranquebar 
and marrying her though a Jew to a Christian by the way." 
Tho turbulent missionary was probably J. G. B6vingh, whose 
acts and whose books troubled Fenger a great deal in writing 
his History of tho Tranquebar Mission. 

Here lieth the body of Abraham Salomons. His diligence, 
industry, honesty and punctuality in all his dealings justly 
gained him the reputation of a good merchant ; his courtesy 
and benevolence to all degrees of mankind made him to be 
both beloved and respected. After a course of xix 
years residenco in this place, he departed this life on the 
v June of tho year mdooxlv of the Christian ./Era. David 
and Solomon Salomons in public testimony and regard to 
the memory of their deceased brother caused this monument 
to be erected. 

The name of tho Salomons' firm crops up in tho correspondence 
of the Nabob of Arcot. Solomon Solomons arrived in the 
Grantham 1739. Had free merchant's indenture. *' Eph- 
raim Isaac lato a free merchant at Fort St. George complains 
of severe and illegal treatment received from Pigot and prays 
that Pigot may be ordered home in order that he may be sued 
in the English Courts. Pigot is to reply by the first convey- 
ance " — Company's Despatch to Pigot March 3, 1759. 

The body of Mr. Solomon Franco, a native of Leghorn, and 
an eminent Hobrew merchant of Madras, lies under this 
stone. He died on the 18th of the month Yiar, A.M. 5523 
(or the 11th May 1763). 
Several lines in Hebrew precede. 

Solomon Franco arrived in tho Princess of Wales 17th January 
1742. Had free Merchant's indentures. A Franco died at Luck- 
now July 1, 1799. Garden Houses of Solomon Franco and 
Walsh were marked in maps of 1 755 (map of 1 755 for Pedda- 
naiques Petta). The small Portuguese Church near Franco's 
Garden (mentioned in tho siege of 14 Madras 1758 ") is probably 
that of the virgin in Portuguese Church Street, whioh, like the 
Cathedral in Armenian Street, bears on its portals the mis-

supporting a largo vase surmounted by a funnrel urn. On the 
Hide of the vase are the following Latin verses which do credit 
to their author, who was an Etonian and a Fellow of King's 
College, Cambridge 

" Sisto gradum, si qure est Britonum tibi cura, viator, 
Siste gradum ; vacuo rocolas inscripta sepulcro

And beneath on a tablet : " Sacred to the memory of those depart- 
ed warriors of the 79th Regiment, by whose valour, discipline 
and perseverance, the French land forces in Asia were first 
withstood and repulsed ; the commerce of Great Britain preser- 
ved ; her settlements rescued from impending destruction. The 
memorable defence of Madras, tho decisive battle of Wandewash, 
twelve strong and important fortresses, three superb capitals, 
Aroot, Pondicherry, Manilla, and tho Philippino Islands, are 
lasting monuments of their military glory. Their generous 
treatment of a vanquished enemy exhibits an illustrious example 
of true fortitude and moderation, worthy of being transmitted 
to latest posterity, that future generations may know humanity 
is the characteristic of British conquerors." The sides of the 
table are inscribed with the names of the officers of the 79th 
Regiment, who fell in Asia : '* Field officers. Major Chol-

768 Oot. 1805. LORD CoBNWALLIS. The Statue of Lord Cornwallis was inside the Fort St. George 

till 1906 when it was docidod to remove it to a more appro- 
priate place owing to the destructive effects of the sea air 
and red dust. It was nt first decided by Government that the 
statue should remain in its former position as Mr. Gajjar, a well 
known Bombay scientist, to whose caro the work of repair 
was entrusted, assured them that it would be weatherproof 
after the surface of the marble had been renovated. But 
even after renovation it was found that the sta air was again 
attacking it and that the surface was decaying owing to ex- 
posure to rain. The Government after mature consideration 
transferred the statue from its position in the Fort to one end 
of tho largo and spacious reading room of the Connemara

Bom at Bucy near Soiasons in 1718. He lost his father at mi eai Jy 
age and inheriting nothing but his pedigroe came out to the 
Ue de France at tho time that Labour donnais was Governor, 
and formed ono of his expedition to India in 1746. When 
Labourdonnais returned to Europe, Bussy remained behind an 
an officer of Dupleix'sai my. He accompanied MuzafTer Jung to 
tho Deocan in his disastrous expedition against the insurgent 
Afghan Chiefs in which the latter was killed. After his death 
he procured the appointment of Sal a bat Jung to tho vacant 
throne of the Nizam and practically made of him a Fiench pre- 
fect. His handful of Europeans soon became the nucleus of 
a powerful army. Such ascendancy aroused many enemies. 
During his absence in January 1753 at the coast recruiting his 
health, the minister Said Lashkar withheld all allowances due 
to his troops with a view to breaking up the force. Bussy 
rose from his bed and marched straight to Aurangabad, where 
tho Court was, and obtained a cession of four provinces (after- 
wards known as the Northern Circars) for the pay of his oorps. 
The following year his astonishing military success at the siege 
of 8a va no re inflamed the old resentmont against him, and in 
1756 Bussy and his troops were peremptorily dismissed from 
service. The Nizam had meantime applied to the English for 
assistance to drive out the French and the request was about 
to be granted, when tho news of the capture of Calcutta divorted 
every British soldier noithward. Bussy, after staving off an 
attack from Salabat Jung, regained all his old authority. He 
had been seven years founding the interest of his nation in the 
Deccan, when Lally's advent destroyed his power. He was re- 
called from hjs territories to carry out Lally's views and opera- 
tions further south, in 1758. Two years lator he was captured 
at Wandewash by Coote, but liberated in consideration of his 
generous treatment to English prisoners. After an absence of 
twenty -three years ho returned to Pondicherry as Governor in 
1783, but so many years of sloth and luxury had impaired hjs 
facultios, and with the treaty of Versailles all military opera- 
tions ceased. It was during his sojourn in France that Orme 
made his acquaintance. To quoto his words, 44 the only man of 
distinguished capacity who served under Dupleix was M. Bussy, 
and his conduct to this officer showed that he knew the value of 
merit, and was capable of employing it to the utmost advantage, 
for although M. Bussy had, by his expedition to the northward, 
acquired much reputation and a great fortune, he beheld his 
successes without the least envy, and implicitly followed his 
advice in all affairs of which M. Bussy, by his situation, might 
be a better judge than himself. 0 

Bussy, when in France, married a niece of the Due do Cho/seul. 
He died on January 17th, 1785 [lio], in the evening, as he war 
playing at cards. Bar r as in his memoirs draws a \erj 
uncomplimentary picture of him after he returned to India to 
his old age. 

Anquetil de Perron refers to the death of Bussy on p. 
( Historiqne et Geographique de L'Inde Vol. III.

of Trevandrum. He is still remembered among the natives 
under tho name '* Istach,'* a corruption of Eustache. 
De Lannoy lios buried in the ruined Chapel of the Udayagiri Fort 
in South Travancore. " Lanoy " was a soldier, probably a 
sergeant under tho Dutch at Cochin or Quilon, he deserted in 
1740 to Travancoro. He was later appointed Commander in 
Chief of Martanda Varma's disciplined forces said to have

years, died at the age of 62 while giving tho finishing touches to

Tho Right Worshipful Adriaan Moons while deprecating the 
desertion of De Lannoy and one Duyvenschot, considered 
it was duo to their inability to rise to higher rank than Ser-

of good men and throwing them into arms of their opponents — 
(Dutch Records by A. Galletti, Rev. A. J. Van Dor Burg & 
Rovd. P. Groot, pages 25 and 236). 
Ormo in Vol. I, p. 400, under date 1755 writes ** With tho assistance 
of a French Officer named Launoy the King (of Travancore) 
had disciplined in the method of European infantry a body of 
10,000 nairs."

The name D'Lonnoi, the great Dutch Commander, who organizod 
and disciplined tho Travancore Army and fought with it against 
the ancient Rajahs and Chiefs of the Pandyan Kingdoms and 
won distinction for Travancoro is a household word in Travan- 
core, and it must be addod that the first attempt at the forma- 
tion of a fighting force with Western arms of warfare was his. 
Though a Dutchman by birth and education, after he took 
service under the Travancoro Rajah he worked hard and well 
to keep up the prostige of Travancore and it was clue to him

Arungoulur, Quilon on the 11th of June 1813, aged 32 years. 
Never was a purer or more exalted mind that which onoe 
animated the dust that sleeps below, nor were the propensities 
ho inherited from nature enfeebled by inaction or wasted by 
injudicious effort. He was a living spring of beneficence to 
all around him and feelings of esteem and regard were be- 
come inseparably associated with his name. In the enjoy- 
ment of honourably earned reputation and whilst fondly 
exulting in those newly formed ties which promised domestic 
bliss to his future years he sank into an untimely tomb. 
The officers of the corps which he commanded erected 
this monument as a faint tribute to his public and private 
worth and as a mark of their unavailing sorrow for his 
irreparable loss. 

He married at Quilon, March 2nd, 1812, a daughter of Gen. Hall 
(No. 2739) commanding the Travanoore Subsidiary Foroe).

deportment and utterly careless to advance himself, in

full of zeal and perseverance. In the campaigns of the 
Peninsula, whilst fighting under the command of his brother 
Lord Hill, he was amply satisfied with contributing to his 
glory, without seeking although deserving to share in his 
honours. He was born at Prees in Shropshire on the 6th of

January and was buried at Honawar 22nd January 1845,

Walter Scott the poot (1771-1832) married, December 24th, 1797, 
Margaret Charlotto (d. May 14th, 1826), sister of Charles Car- 
penter, M.C.S. (No. 2315). The deceased was his eldest eon, 
born October 28th, 1801, and married, February 3rd, 1825, 
to Jane, daughter of John Jobson of Lochore, oo. Fife. He 
died without issue on board the Wellesley oft the Cape, 
when the baronetcy became extinct. Walter Scott's other 
son Charles, godson ol Charles Carpenter, was educated 
at B.N.C., Oxford, and became attache" to the British 
embassy at Teheran, where he died unmarried October 
28th, 1841. It is interesting to note in this connection 
that the second son of Dickens, Walter Landor, died in Calcutta 
December 31st, 1863, of Haematemesis, a cadet on the Bengal 
establishment. On the new year's Day 1864 he was buried in 
the military Cemetry Bhowanipore. The Burial Register 
gives his age as 24 but according to Forster's "Life of Charles 
Dickens" he was within a month of completing his twenty third 
year, and had been doing duty with the 42nd Highlanders. 
Dickens' sons, all had literary names ; Alfred Tennyson (in 
Australia), Edward Bulwer Lytton (also in Australia), Henry 
Fielding, K. C, and Sidney Smith (in the navy; died at sea). 
Mr. Henry Fielding Dickens, K. C, is the 6th son of the famous 
novelist, and tho latter at first thought of naming him Oliver 
Goldsmith. Dickens certainly paid tribute to literature in the 
names of sons. One was named Walter Landor, another Francis 
Jeffrey, third Alfred Tennyson, a fourth Sydney Smith Haldi- 
mand and a fifth Edward Bulwer Lytton. Henry Fielding was 
something of a favourite with his father who was particularly 
ploased when he gained a scholarship at Cambridge. Mr. Dick- 
ons, K. C, has a son who is a barrister. Edward Bulwer Lytton 
also was in Calcutta sometime. He died at Sydney at 51, after 
* representing Wilcannia, in the New South Wales Parliament for 

six years. Alfred Tennyson also settled in Australia. Sidney 
Smith enterod the navy and at 20 was buried at Sea. Francis 
Jeffery joined the north-west mounted police. Charles and

a noble and most gallant resistance to a superior force of 
the enemy on the plains of Periambaucum was ultimately 
compelled to surrender to the united armies of Hyder Ally 
and Tippoo Sultaun on the 10th day of September 1780 
and died in the fortress of Seringapatam on the 13th day 
of November 1782. This monument is erected and inscribed 
by his nephew John Baillie, Lieut. -Colonel on the estab- 
lishment of Bengal and Resident at the Court of Lucknow 
A. D. 1816.

Periambaucum (see No. 1454), the scene of the most grievous 
disaster that has as yet befallen the British arms in India, is 
15 miles north-east of Conjeoveram. The best account of 
Baillic's defeat is that given by the Hon. John Lindsay, who was 
himself captured, there in the 44 Lives of the Lindsays," volume 
III, page 255. The younger Lally, Pimoran and tho other 
French officers serving with Hyder prevented much indiscrimi- 
nate slaughter. The walls of the Darya Daulat Bagh (formerly 
Tippoo's favourite garden and subsequently the residence of the 
Duke of Wellingtor) are covered with grotesque fresco paintings 
of the battle. Hickey's "Gazette" of October 14th, 1780,

The late Lieutenant-Colonel John Baillie entfcrod the servico 
of the Honourable the East India Company in the year 1790, 
and arrived in India in 1791. He applied himuelf with great 
diligence to the study of the learned languages of the East ; 
as a proof of which it may bo mentioned, that in the year 1797 
at the desire of the Governor-General (Sir John Shore) he 
undertook the translation from the Arabic of a copious digest 
of Muhammadan law t so arranged as to comprise the whole of 
the Imamea code, as applicable to secular matters. This work 
it was originally contemplated would extend to four volumes in 
quarto but of these the first only was ever published, and that 
without the preliminary discourse or table of contents. It 
comprehends only the laws of commercial transactions. 

On the establishment of the College of Fort William, Colonel 
Baillie was appointed professor of tho Arabic and Persian 
languages of Muhammadan law, a post which ho filled with 
high credit until the year 1807, when he was appointed resi- 
dent at the Court of the Nawab Vizir of Oude, in place of 
Colonel Collins. During the period of his professorship, Colonel 
Baillie was twice called into active service as political agent 
to the Governor-General in Bundelkhund, and for the zeal 
and ability displayed by him in this capacity he was honoured 
with the public thanks of tho Government. In the year 1 801 
he published a series of sixty fables, elucidatory of tho first part 
of his course of lectures at the College on the inflexions of 
Arabic Grammar, namely the Miut Amil ; Shurhu Miut 
Amil ; Misbah ; Hedayet un Nuhvi ; and the Kafeea of 
Ebn Hajeb. In consequence of his employment in Bundel- 
khund, the work was not completed and indeed all further 
literary exertion appears to have been put a stop to by his 
appointment to Lucknow, where he remained till 1815. In 
1 818 he retired from the service and in 1823 succeeded the late 
Mr. Cotton as a Director of tho East India Company. Colonel 
Baillie was a native of Inverness, and represented that district 
of burghs in Parliament. 

On April 20, 1833 at his house in Devonshire Place Col. John 
Baillie in his 61st year died. He was M.P. for Inverness 
and succeeded John Cotton as a Director of the Company in

Seven Years' War, and was present in several sea-fights agaiast 
the English in West Indian and American waters. The regi. 
ment's first masters were the Dutch East India Company, 
under whom they served at the Cape and in Ceylon. They 
then crossed bayonets with the English at the French defenoe 
of Cuddaloro in 1782. Among the garrison of that little 
town was a young Sergeant, named Bernadotte, the future 
Marshal of the Empire and King of Sweden and Norway (see No. 
1206). In 1795, we find de Meuron and his men once more in 
Ceylon, and, on the conquest of the island by the English, they 
transferred thoir allegiance without difficulty to the British 
Crown. Colonel do Meuron becamo Brigadior-General in 
command of the troops in Ceylon, and hia officers wore ranked 
with officers of the King's service. In the following year the 
rogiment was transferred to the Madras establishment, and 
after being in garrison successively at Poonamallee, Arnee and 
Vellore, took part in the operations beforo Soringapatam, 
where it was brigaded with the 33rd and 73rd Foot under Co- 
lonel (afterwards Sir Arthur) Wellesley. A journal kept by 
Lieutenant Charlos de Meuron Tribolefc gives a graphic account 
of the campaign. The grenadier and light companies formed 
part of the storming column and lost 16 killed, including Lieu-, 
tenant A. Mat they and Assistant Surgeon Lesser, and 60 wounded 
including Captains Piachaud and Lardy. A descriptive pa- 
norama of the assault was exhibited in London at the Lyceum 
in which Captain Lardy, the leader of the forlorn hope, figures 
prominently. An engraving of this curious picture may be 
seen in the library of the Maharaja of Durbhunga. After 
tho fall of the fortress the regiment was stationed on the Island 
and subsequently at French Rocks, 7 miles away. On Feb- 
ruary 10th, 1806, it left Fort St. George for Europe, and, after 
successively garrisoning the Isle of Wight, Guernsey, Sicily, 
and Malta, found its way to Canada, where it was finally 
disbanded tho year after Waterloo, consequent upon the reduc- 
tion of the English army to a peace footing. Eighteen mem- 
bers of the do Meuron family had held commissions in its ranks 
during tho thirty-five years of its history. The Colonel com- 
manding was always a de Meuron, and the Lieu tenant -Colonel 
generally ono. Yorck, the Prussian General, who gained some 
celebrity in the Napoleonie wars, completed his apprenticeship 
to arms in this polyglot body, which at the time of its breaking 
up in 1816 was composed of members of almost evory natio- 
nality in Europe.

Colonel Scott was placed in charge of the gun carriage works ir t 
1800 and afterwards commanded the station. He is mentioned 
by Lord Valentia in 1804 as " Captain Scott, who had just 
exerted himself with the highest credit to ostablish that manu- 
factory." His bungalow stands on the banks of the Can very 
not far from the English cemetery, and is kopt up almost 
in the same state as when he loft it in 1817 after the loss of his 
wife and daughters. The story of thi« deserted house has 
formed the subject of a poem in the well-known u Lays of !nd " 
by Aliph Cheem (Captain Yeldham*. 
" There stands on the isle of Seringapatam, 
By the Cauvery, eddying fast, 
A bungalow lonely. 
And tenanted only 
By memories of the past. 
It has stood, as though under a curse or spell, 
Untouched since the year that Tippoo fell. 
The mouldering rooms are now as they stood 
Near eighty years ago ; 
The piano is there, 
And table and chair, 
And the carpet, rotting slow, 
And the beds whereon the corpses lay, 
And the curtains half time-mawed away/* 

Scott was a fellow officer with Wellington and fought with him 
in India. Tho bungalow has lately had several articles of the 
furniture taken out and has been cleaned up. The tradition is 
that Col. Scott eamo back to find his wife and 2 daughters 
dead of Cholera and throw himsolf into the river from the steps 
of his house. The truth is his wife died in childbed and Seott 
died in London in 1833. Wollosley was only prevented from 
going to Egypt as 2nd in command of Baird expedition by 
an attack of itch (Kalji). Ho was detained at Bombay and 
tho boat sailed without him. It was lost at sea with ail on 
board. The story is told in G. W. Forrest's Sepoy Generals 
and in Major Price. In both books is to be found the story 
of the British Officer who cut off one of Tippoo's moustaches.

south of the platform is an edifioe like a Grecian temple in 
which are kept the lamps and other articles used to decorate 
the tomb. Rude crosses in rod are painted on the basement cf

Michel Joaohim Marie Raymond was born at Serignae on the 
25th September 1755. His father was a merchant, and in 
January 1775 the son set out from Lorient to Pondioherry with 
the intention of starting a corresponding house in India, but 
soon abandoned trade for the more exciting profession of arms 
and entered a oorps in the service of Tippoo commanded by the 
Chevalier do Lasse. In 1783 he became Bussy's Aide-de-Camp, 
and on the lattor's death two years later succeeded the younger 
Lally (see No. 1794) as commandant of the French cavalry, 
which Nizam Ali had taken over from his brother Basalat Jung 
and lent to Hyder for his Carnatic campaigns. Raymond 
gradually altered the composition of this force to an army 
oorps of twonty sepoy battalions officered by Europeans and 
maintained by the revenues of an entire jaghire. His death 
ocourred suddenly at the zenith of his fame, poisoned by his 
enemies at the Court of the Nizam, when he was at the head 
of 15,000 disciplined troops, with numerous magazines and 
gun foundries, one of which not unlike an immense racket 
court still stands near the Chudderghaut Residonoy. Raymond 
used to make his own guns and construct the foundries, the 
most well-known being called Top-ka-Sancha near Fatah 
Mai dan. The French gardens in which Raymond and hi* 
officers resided and close to which the troop lines are situated 
are about only a mile from the hill where his tomb is. These are 
now held in Jaghir by some Nawab. His suooesYor Jean Henri 
Piron (born at Huningue, March 25th, 1763, died at Chander-

months later Jamee Achilles Kirkpatrick, the British Resident, 
was able to oxecuto a treaty with the Nizam under the terms 
of which the entire foreign contingent was to be disbanded. 
On October 20th, 1798, 14.000 men and 124 officers laid down 
their arms to a force of British troops under Colonel Roberts, 
John Malcolm, Assistant Resident, and Kirkpatrick ; and the 
celebrated French corps of Hyderabad passed into a tradition. 
The name of Monsieur Raymond is still kept up in the Mysoram 
Regiment of irregulars, and on every anniversary of Raymond's 
death the tomb and platform are brilliantly illuminated and 
a grand fair held, which is largely attended. Salutes are fired 
by the Irregular troops, many of whom are descendants of Musa

H^r husband Thomas Sydenham, natus circa, 1780, was second 
son of Colonel W. Sydenham (No. 1366). After serving in the 
Mysoro war as Captain of Guides, he was nominated Secretary 
to tho residency of Hyderabad. He returned to England in 
1802 and studied at Christ Church under Dean Jackson. In 
1804 he again sailed for the cast and was appointed first to the 
charge of the residency in Persia and then (1806) to that of 
Hyderabad. Resigning this office in 1810 he proceeded to 
England, was sent by Lord Wellesley on a confidential mission 
to the Peninsula, and became charge* d* affaires at Lisbon. In 
1812 ho joined tho Earl of Wellington in camp, and served with 
him as a volunteer in the campaign of that year. He then 
repaired to the headquarters of the Russian army and took 
part, in the company of his friend Count Woronzov, in the 
battles of 1814. His gallantry at Craon procured him the crosi 
of St. Georgo from the hands of the Emperor Alexander, while 
Bornadotte presented him with the Swedish insignia of the 
Sword. On the conclusion of peace, Sydenham was appointed 
British envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary at 
Lisbon, but his career was cut short by an incurable illness at 
Geneva, August 28th, 1816. 

There is a portrait of Sydenham in the Faluknama palace. He did

999 17th June Geobgb Rumbold. George Rumbold, Esq., who died on tho 17th day of June 
1820. 1820, infinitely boloved, aged 26 years. 

The Rumbolds furnish an apt illustration of Kipling's saying that 
certain families find their way to India generation after genera- 
tion, as dolphins follow in line across the open sea. William 
Rumbold, of the Company's service, who was buried at Fulham 
on September 15th, 1728, became the father of two sons, Henry 
and William. Henry was Secretary to tho Council at Fort 
William and died in Bengal, September 1st, 1743. He marriod 
Sarah Basnet at Fort St. George, August 17th, 1731. William 
rose to bo second at Tellicherry and died in 1 745. Of his three 
sons, William, the eldest, entered the Company's military 
service and died at Fort St. David on August 1st, 1757, m his 
twenty-eighth year : and the second, Henry, died at sea at an 
early age. Orme has a letter from Lt. Wm. Rumbold dated 
Camp near Madura 22 May 1757 describing the state of affair* 
at Madura (Hill, p. 109). " Tho follg. havo died on the Coast: 
Lieutenants William Rumbold and John Keith and Cadet Daniel 
Anthony Montach." Pigot's despatch to Directors Nov. 15, 

Thomas Rumbold, the youngest (1736-1791), is erroneously said 
to have begun life as a boots at Arthur's, fashionable gaming 
house in St. James' or as a tide-waiter at the London Docks. 
In 1752 ho entered tho Company's service as a Writer, but 
boforo long exohangod the civil for the military profession, as 
Clive had done. After serving under Lawrenco in the operations 
round Trichinopoly in 1754, he accompanied Clive to Bengal 
in 1756, and for his gallantry at tho siege of Calcutta receivod 
a captain's commission. He was Clive's Aide-do-Camp at the 
battle of Plassey and was severely wounded. Permission wag 
given to him to revert to the civil sorvioe, and in December 
1760, he was third at Chittagong. Subsequently he became 
Chief at Patna and from 1766 to 1769 was a Member of Council 
af Fort William. Ho had now made his fortune and returned 
to England. On November 26th, 1770, he took his seat in the 
House of Commons as member for New Shoreham. Seven 
3'ears later he was appointed to succeed Lord Pigot as Governor 
of Fort St. George whore he landed on February 8th, 1778. 
In the following Ootober, Pondicherry capitulated to Sir Hector 
Munro, and Rumbold wag created a baronet on March 23xd, 
1779. On April 6th, 1780, he resigned his governorship and sailed 
for England. On his arrival, he was held responsible for Hyder's 
invasion of the Carnatio and dismissed the service of the Com* 
pany by the directors. The parliamentary enquiry which 
ensued proved abortive : and Rumbold continued to sit in the 
House and play the part of a nabob until his death on November 









(3) (4) 


11th, 1791. He was twice married, but left his estates to his 
children by his second wife, who was a daughter of Edmund 
Law, Bishop of Carlisle. His eldest son by his first wife, William 
Richard (1760-1786), was Aide-de-camp to Sir Hector Munro 
at the siege of Fondicherry and carried home the despatches 
and the colours of the fortress for presentation to the King. The 
second baronet, Sir George Berriman Rumbold (1764-1807), 
was so named after his mother, Frances Berriman, who had 
married Thomas Rumbold at Madras on June 22nd, 1756. She 
died at Calcutta in childbirth, August 22nd, 1764, nged 26. Her 
parents James Borriman and Frances Aspinwall were married 
at Fort. St. George, October 9th, 1736. G. B. Rumbold was 
born at Fort William on August 17th, 1764, and while Minister 
Resident at Hamburg in 1804, was seized by order of the 
French Government and conveyed as a prisoner to the Temple 
in Paris. Ho died at Memel in 1807. Two of his sons joined 
tho banking house of Palmer & Co., and are buried at Hydera- 
bad : George, the second, who is hero commemorated, and 
William, the oldest, who sueceodod his father in the baronetcy 
and died in 1833. 
The Asiatic Journal (March 1834 — p. 150 of Asiatic Intelli- 
gence) observes : 
" We are sorry to announce the death of Sir William Rumbold, 
at Hyderabad, by an attack of apoplexy, in bed, on tho night 
of the 23rd August. 
" The name of Sir William Rumbold has-been a good deal before 
the public, both here and in England, in consequence of his 
connexion with the firm of Palmer and Co. of Hyderabad. His 
retirement from that firm, previously to its ruin, was not a 
voluntary act, being in consequence of an order from govern- 
ment, withdrawing his license to reside and carry on business 
in the territories of the Nizam. But although he thereby 
escaped the responsibilities of the failure, he never ceased to 
protect the interests of his late partners and their constitutors 
with the warm and active advocacy of his talents and influence 
at home. After an absence from India of several years, he 
returned in 1829 with almost unlimitod powers from the creditor! 
in England, and with the sanction of tho Court of Directors, 
to aid in prosecuting large claims exceeding the amount of the 
unpaid debts of the house and considered desperate only under 
the adverse influence of the British authorities. Actions were 
brought in consequence in the Nizam's courts, and judgment! 
were obtained ; but the sinister (though erroneous) impression 
of government hostility still remained and the parties, being men 
high in office, continued to set the trustees of the house at defi- 
ance. The laws of the country were powerless against a despotic 
minister and relations. Tho vigilance of Sir William Rumbold 
did not fail to apprize the Board of Control of the true situation 
in which he found himself under tho deceptive protection 
afforded him ; and at length tho head of that Board, as it ii 
well known by the published proceedings in the matter of the 
Mandamus, against the opinion of a small majority in the Court 
of Directors took up the case of the Hyderabad House as a 
case of British claims upon a foreign power in which under 
the peculiar circumstances of foreign interference, the govern- 
ment stood compromised to something more than a nominal 
protection. It is understood, that, not long since, instructions 
to this effect were received in Calcutta, and that they have been 
acted upon by the transmission of corresponding instructions 
to the Resident at Hyderabad. We have also heard* that, in 
consequence thereof, sanguine expectations are now entertained, 
that very large sums will be recovered for the benefit of the 
estate. These hopos and tho favourable position of things on 
which they are founded would not have existed but for the 
energy and talents and indefatigable zeal of Sir William 
Rumbold, who had the tact to engage the attention of the real 
rulers of India, and to enable them to see through the mystifica- 
tion of a very complicated affair."

married at Castle Donington on July 13th, 1809, Henrietta 
Elizabeth, daughter and co-heiress of Thomas Boothby, Lord 
Raincliffo (No. 2258). Four of his sons succeeded to the

44 During the reign of Nizam Nasir ud Doulah were constructed 
two large houses oik? named Rumbold's Kothe and the other 
Pertoroji's Kothe. R. K. was the house of Sir Wm. Rumbold 
who was a partner in the firm of Palmer & Co. He was a 
grandson of the famous Governor of Madras and came to India, 
wit h a fortune of £8000 during the viceroyalty of Lord Hastings 
having married a ward of that noble man's. He subsequently 
joined the firm of Palmer & Co. and remained a partner till 
its failure. Sir W. R. died here in 1833. The building is now an 
annexe of the King Kothe. Pertomji's Kothe is a large building 
standing well back from the main road erected on an immense 
stone basement. The erection alone of the engineering [?] works 
which surrounded the grounds is said to have cost a lac of 
rupers. The house was built by the famous Parsi bankers Per* 
tomji & Co., who collected the revenues of Borur. They suc- 
ceeded Puran Mai in 1839. In 1845 Pertomji was compelled 
to give, up his districts. The Kothi is now named as Mohsin- 
ul-mulk's Kothe and was purchased by Nawab Mohsin-ul-mulk 
for a lac of rupees."

44 The only cloud upon the lator years (1820-23) of the Marquess 
of Hastings' rule in India was caused by the embarrassed state 
of the Nizam's affairs. The groat banking firm of Palmer 
& Co. had become a power at Hyderabad, a power which 
Sir Charlos Metcalfe the Resident (1820-25) pronounced so 
dangerous that Lord Hastings was compelled to step in bet- 
ween the impoverished Nizam and his creditors. The claims 
of tho former to a yearly tribute for the Northorn Circars 
were wiped out for ever by tho payment of a largo sum down, 
most of which went to extinguish tho loans due to the English 
bankers. A year afterwards tho house of Palmer & Co. 
stopped payment. On the Governor-General's roturn to 
England in 1823, the Court of Proprietors passed a vote of 
virtual censure upon him for his conduct in the affairs of 
Palmer & Co. which was only softenod by his acquittal of any 
corrupt intent. It was not until his death in 1827 that the 
India Houso made him some amends by voting £20,000 to his

Hydorabad from 1863 to 1867. It was during his tenure of 
office that Kirkpa trick's Rang Mahal was pulled down. In 
April 1861, ho had officiated as Chief Commissioner of Oudh, and 
from May 1867 to January 1868, he was a member of the Gover- 
nor-General's Council. During the Mutiny he was Commissioner 
of the Bhagalpur division in Lower Bengal, and received the C.B, 
for his services. He was as famous as a shikari as he was distin- 
guished as an administrator. Of his two brothers, Robert Yule, 
the second (1817-67), fell while leading his regiment, the 9th 
Lancers, in a gallant action before Delhi. The youngest was the 
well-known Sir Henry Yule (1820-1889), geographer and editor 
of " Marco Polo's Travels " and of the " Diary of Sir William 
Hedges for the Hakluyt Society." He was created a C.B. in 
1 862 and appointed a member of the Secretary of State's Council. 
On his retirement in the year of his death (1889), he was made 
K. C.S.I. His first appointment on joining the Bengal Engineers 
in 1840 was among the Khasiae, who inhabit the hills in the midst 
of which Shillong now stands, and his account of their quaint 
manners and customs and of the megalithic monuments in their 
country was his first piece of literary research. The father of the 
Yules was a Major in the East India Company's Service, William 
Yule (1764—1839) who was himself an orientalist of some 
reputation and whose valuable collection of Persian and Arabic 
manuscripts was presented by his sons to the British Museum.

1018 20th Nov. William Palmer. This monument contains the remains of William Palmer, who 
18 q 7 died on 20th Nov. 1867 in his 87th year. He had been a 

resident of Hyderabad for nearly 70 years, where he was 
prominently known, and his memory requires no reoord. 
But he desires anxiously that the goodness of Hester Palmer, 
his wife, towards him, who survived him, should be known 
by this, record drawn up on his deathbed. She was hia 
comfort for the last 20 years of his life, which was involved 
generally in distress and difficulties. Her strong mind and 
good sense supported himself during his sickness, and contri- 
buted to prolong his life, and her private moans were 
employed to maintain him in ease and comfort when he was 
penniless, as indeed they were subsequently to educate some 
of his grandchildren whom she has loved, though not con- 
ned ed by blo« d with them, as if they were her own, and 
which she continues to do. May the blessing of Almighty 
and Most Merciful (Jod be with her and her grandchildren

" King " Palmer, son of Gen. Wm. Palmer, founded the great 
banking house which bore his name. He married, May 15th, 
1848, Hester n6o Sharp, tho widow of Cornelius Dosormeaux, 
Surgoon. She was born Soptember 1st, 1817, and died Sep- 
tember 6th, 1877. Palmer established his house at Hyderabad 
in 1814, and shortly afterwards offered to relieve tho Nizam's 
Government of tho financial burden of the contingent required 
to keep the peace of India during the Pindari War, by lending 
it 2 J lacs a month for two years, the security being an assignment 
of the land revenue of the dominions and the rate of interest 
18 per cent. This was agreed to by the Prime Minister Chandu 
Lall and sanctioned by the Marquis of Hastings, then Governor- 
General. Three years later Sir W. Rumbold joined the firm, 
which in 1820 advanced a loan of 60 lacs to Chandu Lall. In 
1840 Mr. Palmer, then the only surviving partner, formulated 
an exhaustive memorandum of reforms in the Hyderabad 
administration, which testifies to his abilities as a statesman 
as well as a financier. Evil days eventually overtook him 
and at the time of his death pecuniary difficulties obscured the 
horizon. His daughter Mary by a previous marriage became the 
wife, on August 25th, 1831, of Meadows Taylor, the distin- 
guished writer of Anglo-Indian Novels, who died in 1876. She 
died at a place called Lingusur on September 20, 1844.

The Persian inscription may be translated : " This well waa dug 
and facod by Major James Achilles Kirkpatrick, Hushmat 
Jung, Vakil of the British Government, the Honourable English 
Company Bahadur, for quenching the thirst of passengers and 
watering the fruit garden and deer paddock, 1804 A.D., 1219 
A.H." This slab is fixed above the well known as Putli Bowroo 
overlooking the City Road running past the Residoncy. 

James Achilles Kirkpatrick, born August 28th, 1764, was the 
second son of Captain James Kirkpatrick of the Madras Cavalry 
and his wife Katharine, n6e Munro. His parents wero married 
at Madras, March 14th, 1 762, and tho mother died January 
27th, 1766, agod 22. There is a tablet to her memory on the 
oast wall of Bombay Cathedral. James Achilles, who was 
educated at Eton, entered the Madras Army, October 18th 
1780. He was invalided home within ten years, but returned 
in time to serve in tho socond Mysore campaign. In 1793 ho 
commanded Vizianagi am, and from there was appointed Persian 
Translator with the force serving under the Nizam. The death 
of Lieutenant William Stewart promoted him to be Assistant 
to his younger brother William, Resident at Hyderabad. Early 
in 1797 William was compollod to proceod to the Capo for his 
health, and James Achilles became Resident. He held the 
poet for nine years and in that time negotiated three important 
troatios ; by tho most important of which a British subsidiary 
force was to replace Raymond's French contingent. Kirk- 
patrick was an extraordinary instance of an orientalised English- 
man. His most famous feat was his marriage in 1800 to 
Khair-un-nissa Begum, granddaughter of Akil-ud-DowJah, 
Buxey or Paymaster to the British Subsidiary Force. This 
exploit was made tho subject of calumnious reports to Calcutta 
by Kirkpatrick's enemies, and Lord Wellesley had a searching 
enquiry held, the result of which was to completely exonerate 
Kirkpatrick from blame. Two children were born to him, and 
these two wells commemorate their births. Catherine Aurora 
Kirkpatrick, the daughter, married Captain James Winglo* 











Phillipps of the 7th Hussars, and died March 2nd, 1889, at the 
villa Sorrento Torquay. She is the " Kitty Kirkpatrick " of 
Carlyle's Reminiscences and according to some the Blumine of 
his Sartor Resartus. (Vide articles in the Nineteenth Century 
for September 1892 by George Strachey and in Blackwood's 
"Magazine" for July 1893 by Sir Edward Strachey.) Her 
brother William George died young, leaving a widow and three 
daughters. Chinnery'B portrait of the two children in Eastern 
dress is now at Torquay in Mr. Paul Phillipps' house. It was 
formerly kept in the Rang Mahal or Zenana at the back of the 
Chudderghaut Residency, which Kirkpatrick built for his Indian 
princess. This building fell into disrepair and was finally 
pulled down by Sir George Yule's in the sixties. The old 
Residency gardener can however recall it (1901), and in Sir 
Salar Jung's Art Gallery is what appears to be a picture of the 
place. In the same collection is a portrait of James Achilles. 
His vernacular name was Hushmat Jung " The Magnificent in 
Battle," a title given him by the Nizam ; and outside the 
principal gate of the Residency is a small grain bazaar still 
known as Hushmat Ganj.
